Coreopsis verticillata Cruizin′ ‘Route 66’

Threadleaf Coreopsis

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.165.210

Sometimes known as Threadleaf Coreopsis, this forms a spreading clump of very delicate, ferny foliage. This selection bears loads of starry yellow flowers with burgundy centres, each a little different from the next, from early summer into the fall. Clipping off faded flowers will encourage buds to form all season. Tolerant of hot, dry sites, once established. Excellent for cutting. Great for mass planting in a sunny area and will even adapt to naturalized meadow plantings. This species is native to the Eastern USA. Tolerates heat and humidity. Easily divided in early spring. Discovered at Bauer’s Forever Flowers in northwestern Pennsylvania and introduced by ItSaul Plants of Georgia. Part of the Cruizin’ Series. USPP#20609: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
