Coreopsis ‘Golden Dream’

4 Photos


Coreopsis ‘Golden Dream’ is one of the standout annuals from our trial because of its lush green foliage and excellent habit throughout the entire summer. ‘Golden Dream’ has a beautiful floral display although the quantity of flowers is not as impressive as many of the other annuals. However, what it lacks in flower quantity, ‘Golden Dream’ makes up for with its healthy, late-season foliage. The sunshine-yellow flowers measure 1” in diameter and begin to appear in late June. They reach their peak display in mid-July and continue to provide cheerful color well into September. This cultivar was discovered as a sport of Coreopsis ‘Creme Brulee’, a cultivar that is marketed as hardy, but did not prove so in our trial.
