If you like drama, you'll grow to love this new grandiflora, the latest in the Solanna series of tickseeds from Danziger Flower Farm. It's all about drama! Perennial gardeners certainly are taken by coreopsis because of its pretty, colorful show every summer.
Golden Sphere (Coreopsis grandiflora) produces bold, yellow double blooms in early summer that last through fall atop dark green foliage. And its compact growing habit makes it a great choice for borders and containers.
Tolerant of heat and humidity, this beauty is attractive to butterflies but unappealing to deer. It makes an excellent cut flower, too!
