Coreopsis, Hybrid Tickseed, Moonbeam Coreopsis
Pale yellow flowers and a compact habit set 'Moonbeam' coreopsis apart. This highly popular perennial is widely planted because it is easy to grow, colorful and draws many pollinators to the garden. Though commonly listed as a cultivar of Coreopsis verticillata, it is now recognized as a hybrid.
Fine, thread-like, bright green foliage covers this low, clump-forming plant all summer. Over time, it will spread via underground lateral rooted stems, called rhizomes. Throughout summer, 'Moonbeam' offers numerous daisies of palest butter yellow that draw bees and butterflies. Flowering will continue into fall if the spent flowers are occasionally sheared off.
Coreopsis thrives in sun and will withstand high heat. It is exceptionally hardy and is adaptable to most well-drained soil types with a neutral to alkaline pH. In the landscape it looks super planted in sweeps or mixed with ornamental grasses, showy sedums and other attractive, sun-loving perennials.
