Coreopsis  Créme Brulée

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 ‘Créme Brulée’ full sun

If Créme Brulée is your dessert of choice, consider satisfying your sweet tooth in a less caloric but equally delightful way. Originally discovered in Lois Woodhull’s Long Island garden, this new Blooms of Bressingham hybrid is parented by Coreopsis grandiflora and Coreopsis ‘Moonbeam’.

Neat ferny mounds serve as a dark green, threadleaf foil for large, butter yellow, luminous flowers. Delicately notched at each petal tip, the perky, long blooming daisies not only top the foliage but line the robust stems. To savor an array of color and texture, clump forming ‘Créme Brulée’ can be grouped with Verbascum ‘Flush of White’ and Eryngium ‘Sapphire Blue’. (PPAF)

Blooms late June–September.

Size: 20" high x 2' 0"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Coreopsis ‘Créme Brulée’ (P-1251)

Sterling Spring blooming shrubs, plus head-turning Perennials.

Here’s the tall and short of it…

Sterling spring blooming shrubs, all dressed in classy green leaves and crisp white flowers. Viburnum plicatum ‘Summer Snowflake’ is the largest of our featured shrubs, fashioning graceful somewhat horizontal branches adorned with snowy lace caps. Cultivated since 1868, well-loved Spiraea x vanhouttei makes a shapely low maintenance addition to sunny mixed borders, while smaller-statured Deutzia gracilis ‘Nikko' offers a galaxy of dainty white blooms perfect for the rockery, nestled along steps or in a container.

Head turning Perennials

Nearly 65” of rain coupled with chilly spring days spawned a remarkable surge of lush foliar growth, plus spectacular long-lasting flowers in our nursery & garden this year. Spring is always such an exciting time as we watch the multitude of leaves, buds and blooms that seemingly unfurl over night plus the numerous new shoots stretching skyward. Dicentra ‘Gold Heart’s delicate golden foliage glows in dappled shady niches, while the dark leaves of Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’, Astrantia ‘Moulin Rouge's exquisite domes, and the richly colored Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’ promise to turn more than a few heads in your garden. Perhaps you could let Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ cascade down your garden steps, or brighten up a sunny bed with Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’. We hope you’ll make room for a few of these shrubs & perennials. Our extensive display borders which surround the nursery are now open through Colombus Day weekend. Our first guided Saturday Stroll is June 24th., followed by July 15th & 29th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
