Coreopsis ‘Limbo’

4 Photos


Summary

Coreopsis ‘Limbo’ is a tall cultivar and was unable to support itself when in full flower.  Flower coverage was excellent, but these plants would need to be staked in order to fully appreciate the display.  ‘Limbo’ is unlike the other members of the Coloropsis™ Series in that it begins blooming in late June rather than late May.  Cutting some of the plants back in mid-July did not result in a second flush of flowers or new growth.
