Coreopsis ‘Fruit Punch’

Summary

Coreopsis ‘Fruit Punch’ looks phenomenal when in peak bloom at the end of June, but the tall plants are prone to lodging.  Some of the plants were cut back in mid-July to possibly improve their habit and extend the bloom period.  However, this treatment did not seem to have much effect on flowering or plant habit.
