Tickseed

Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam'

Clumps of needle-like foliage with prolific lemon yellow flowers.
Perennial of the Year 1992

Threadleaf Coreopsis forms a spreading clump of very delicate, ferny foliage. This outstanding selection bears loads of starry creamy-yellow daisies, from early summer into late fall. Clipping off faded flowers will encourage buds to form all season. Tolerant of hot, dry sites, once established. Excellent for cutting. Great for edging in the sunny border, or planting in mixed containers. Tolerates heat and humidity. Easily divided in early spring. A former Perennial Plant of the Year, this has performed consistently well in gardens all over the continent.
