Product Information

With so many Coreopsis varieties flowering in yellow colours, ‘Sunstar Rose’ is a refreshing change with its bright magenta pink flowers edged in white.

The flowers of this gorgeous perennial are daisy shaped and begin to open from June, continuing until the first frosts of autumn. Borne in abundance above narrow, dark green leaves, they cover the plant in wonderful, bright colour and with their long, straight stems they’re great cut flowers. Bees and butterflies love their nectar and birds will feast on the seeds, making these ideal plants for bringing wildlife into your garden.

Also known as tickseed, Coreopsis in a native of North American prairies and is extremely rugged, easy to grow and drought tolerant and resistant to mildew. Grown in patio pots and in flower borders, you’ll be treated to month after month of vivid colour with almost no maintenance, just regular deadheading to keep the flowers coming until autumn.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting and reaching a height and spread of 40cm (16in).

Top Tips

  • Deadhead plants regularly to encourage more flowers.

Care Information

  • Grow in full sun in soil that drains well.
  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots – if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Coreopsis will need regular water when first planted until they are established. After that, they are quite drought tolerant.
