Coreopsis verticillata ‘Moonbeam’
at Digging Dog

Coreopsis

Tickseed

The Coreopsis we offer are perennials. They share some characteristics with their annual cousins: they are dependable, easy to work with, and make a quick impact. Though they often play a supporting role, Coreopsis are performers you’ll remember when the show’s over, for foliage as much as for stellar flowers.

A year-round delight, ‘Moonbeam’ emerges in spring as an almost mossy mat; finely cut leaves evolve into fluffy foliage that supports billows of pale yellow-green star bursts. This unusual chartreuse complements almost any other color, though our favorite combination is Penstemon ‘Alice Hindley’ or Miscanthus sinensis ‘Rigoletto’. After its long show, the rust-tinted seed heads remain through fall. Use as a ground cover in the rock garden or border—sturdy ‘Moonbeam’ does it all.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 18" high x 20" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
