Design Tips

Lance Leaf Coreopsis grows fast–getting bushy in the first year, but then disappearing in the second if the soil is too wet or clayey. It’s great for adding color to gardens when other young plants still haven’t flowered. It can add big splashes of color when scattered throughout a garden or a solid mat of yellow when planted in a group.
