Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam'
- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: July to September
- Hardiness: fully hardy
This lovely, exceptionally showy, long-flowering, pale yellow tickseed is perfect for extending the season of a summer border in sun or partial shade. As long as it's deadheaded regularly, it produces a succession of slender-stemmed, single, daisy-like flowers with orange-yellow centres from June to September. The flowers are also attractive to bees and butterflies.
- Garden care: Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and water well during hot, dry spells. Cut the faded flower-stems back down to ground level in autumn and compost.
