I purchased this coreopsis, along with two of the "standard" coreopsis', spring 2008 at Lowes. The "standards" are coming back in full force, but this one seems to have not survived. It's a shame, I loved the leaves and the flower. My soil is rather clay-like, maybe this one needs more sandy soil.

Thrives in poor, sandy and rocky soils with good drainage. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prompt deadheading of spent flower stalks encourages additional bloom. Plants may be cut back hard in summer if foliage sprawls or becomes unkempt. When grown in borders or other formal garden areas, division may be needed every 2-3 years to maintain robustness. ‘Tequila Sunrise’ does not produce viable seed.
This is the 1st year for mine, and it's blooming its little heart out! I deadhead quickly and it keeps going. It looks beautiful next to my purple Stokes asters and moonbeam coreopsis. The variegated foliage adds zest. It tolerates drought and is an easy perennial to care for.
