Most coreopsis are shaped bouquet supporting their flowers like daisies on tall stems above the foliage. They have a very long flowering period and usually without problems and easy to grow.
Coreopsis are tolerant of a wide variety of soil types and environmental conditions, making her a popular choice for gardeners. Some tall varieties can grow up to 4 feet in height and are excellent for the back of a flat strip cut flowers and gardens. They like areas with full sun and well-drained soil.
We must apply a thin layer of compost each spring, followed by a 2-inch layer of mulch to conserve moisture and control weeds. Should be watered during the summer if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week. You can put tutors for larger varieties to keep them upright. After the first frost, cut to an inch or two above the ground.
If insect pests or disease damage the foliage, or if the lower leaves fall, one cut in half to two thirds the plant at the end of the summer to get new fresh leaves.
Most coreopsis flowers are yellow, although a pink variety is also available. Flowers can be single or double form
