Parent: Coreopsis grandiflora

Category: Perennial

Bright yellow semi-double flowers from May through August (deadhead for more flowers). Upright clumping form. Dry soil, well-drained.

My Experience: 

I purchased a 1-gallon plant from Layman's in September 2010 and planted it in the One Of Everything garden. It did very well and produced a nice rounded clump but was getting too wet from being close to the sprinkler so I moved it to the Berm On the Border in summer 2011. It struggled through the autumn but returned, albeit smaller, in spring 2012.
