Gardeners' Notes:

Negative ms_greenjeans On May 30, 2010, ms_greenjeans from Hopkins, MN (Zone 4a) wrote:

I love coreopsis, and this one in particular is very pretty. It was very full, not floppy at all, and flowered all summer. I've had trouble with coreopsis surviving over the winter in zone 4a, but thought this one would do better. It didn't. Out of 6, not even one survived. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong; I put in two large gardens and a lot of different kinds of plants, including some rated only to zone 5, and coreopsis is the only thing I lost.

I love this plant in full sun. Has a tidy mounding habit, doesn't flop over, and has lovely airy foliage. Have not noticed any pests or disease. Plant in partial sun not nearly as pretty, so I would recommend it for full sun exposure.

Foliage is a lovely shade of yellow - not as bright as some of the other cultivars. It is somewhat resistant to powdery mildew. Fast grower. Flowers all summer, even more if dead-headed. Reaches a height of 20".
