  • Easy to grow, unfussy and relatively low maintenance, this Coreopsis is a favorite of bees and butterflies.
  • Welcomed addition to the front of borders, rock gardens, cottage gardens or containers.
  • Midsummer shearing (after the first flush of flowers) will keep this plant looking its best all season.
