Coreopsis latifolia

Summary

Coreopsis latifolia is unique in our trial because it is the only species that grows in the shade. While this is an interesting characteristic, the habit and floral display were both disappointing. The flowers were small and had little visual impact, and the habit was very loose and open. C. latifolia also seems to be stressed by dry soil, causing some leaves and stem tips to wilt during the heat of the summer. However, this species was reliably hardy throughout the entire trial.
