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.

Coreopsis verticillata ‘Moonbeam’ full sun

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.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
