Coreopsis is in the family Asteraceae. This new cultivar originated as a whole plant tissue culture mutation from Coreopsis 'Rum Punch' (U.S. Plant patent application Ser. No. 11/488,815).

I purchased a 1-gallon plant from Laymans in October 2010 and kept it in a pot over the winter in the conservatory. Then I put it in a pot with a Dwarf Cavendish Banana for the summer. It fizzled out.
