COREOPSIS 'Full Moon'

Family

Asteraceae

Botanical Name

COREOPSIS 'Full Moon'( BIG BANG™ SERIES) PPAF

Plant Common Name

Coreopsis, Full Moon Coreopsis, Hybrid Tickseed

General Description

This hybrid tickseed is notable for its uncommonly large canary-yellow flowers, long bloom, and vigor. A complex hybrid from breeder Darrell Probst, 'Full Moon' is the first of his Big Bang Series. The flowers appear in late spring atop upright stems. The flower petals are broad and overlapping, with scalloped tips, and they radiate from an olive-gold or brown center disc. As the flowers wither, cut them away to prompt new flushes of bloom into late autumn.

Like most Coreopsis, this cultivar does best in full to part sun and well drained, average soils that are not highly acidic. It makes a great addition to the middle height zone of sunny perennial borders, and to containers. The flowers are highly attractive to butterflies, and make long-lasting cutflowers.
