Best coreopsis yet!
George Hansen from NE wrote (September 15, 2015):
I received these plants promptly in the spring in good condition. There were a few broken stems, which I simply stuck in the ground, watered and watched rapidly root. Wow! These plants are better than advertised and have remained beautiful, approximately 2 feet wide thrpughout our hot, windy summer. Once established they need little water, but our soils are heavy, so they rarely dry out. The next test for this plant will be our brutal winter. If it survives, I'll be back with another review. So far this is the best I've found and a bargain at the price! You won't be disappointed.
very impressed with these plants

I bought a 6 pack this spring, and was impressed at the size and quality of the plants. A few pieces had broken off, I stuck them in water and one rooted! I live in the SF Bay area, so the cooler nights must be making the white edges appear in the middle of summer. Doesn't seem to need that much water, and with the CA drought, it is nice to have some color and a few flowers (small in size, but not in color) to bring in the house. Keep these wonderful plants coming!
Striking in a hosta bed

Was looking for an easy grower, perennial to standout in my mostly hosta beds. I have always loved the yellow ones but when I saw the claret color with yellow centers, wow!!! It now sets in a three foot opening between two dark green hostas with a small white and green dwarf hosta in the back center, which can be seen through the coreopsis. it is gorgeous!
