Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral smiln32 On Oct 13, 2004, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

This plant is drought-tolerant but does need well-drained soil. It should be cut backing early and late summer to extend the bloom period. It looks great planted in borders or mass plantings in sunny gardens. It reaches 16" high and is supposed to be hardy in zones 7 - 9.

Positive skt On Sep 19, 2004, skt from Lincoln, NE wrote:

excellent bush; not as compact as moonbeam coreopsis with longer stems so the flowers wave in breezes.
Deadhead often for increased blooming; mine are 3 years old and bloom continuously for 2-3 months (zone 5). Drought-tolerant as well.
