Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral mslehv On Mar 5, 2011, mslehv from Columbus, OH (Zone 5b) wrote:

As a second year plant this grew much taller (>4') and bushier than expected of a coreopsis. It required staking to protect its neighbors and I was forced to move it to a more back-of-the-border location in the fall.

On the plus side, it blooms profusely from mid-summer through to frost in full sun. I agree that the blooms are only about 1".

"Full Moon" coreopsis has become one of my favorite plants. I have grown it in my zone 6b northwest Arkansas garden for three years now, in well-drained soil where it gets minimum 8 hours of sun a day. The flower is a pretty true yellow with no orange in it. It starts to bloom for me early July and usually stays in heavy bloom until our first frost in October. It tends to flop over, but I have not staked it.The tag with the plant claimed that it produces flowers more than 2 inches wide.... but that was NOT the case for me... more like 1 inch. But the lovely shade of yellow and continuous heavy bloom mid summer to frost are, in my view, highly endearing qualities. I recommend it highly.
