Coreopsis is a naturally rugged prairie plant and ideally suited to today's low maintenance gardens.
‘Moonbeam’ forms compact mounds of dense thread-like foliage and its delightful golden centred pale yellow flowers are carried on tall stems, above fine, feathery foliage - which gives them another alternative name of threadleaf, while their more common name, 'tickseed,' refers to the seeds which are said to resemble ticks and these are a great favourite of garden finches.
Easy to grow, drought tolerant, and long blooming, Coreopsis certainly earn their keep in a sunny flower border, rewarding you with plenty of flowers for very little effort on your behalf.
Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators', the flowers are produced through the summer and are a favourite with butterflies and bees.
Compact and robust, it's definitely a plant for the front of the border or a mixed container – versatile and easy.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting.
