Coreopsis ‘Mambo’

4 Photos



Coreopsis ‘Mambo’ received poor ratings because of its mediocre floral display and poor habit.  The tall plants were unable to support their own weight and began to lodge as they came into bloom.  Like the other members of the Coloropsis™ Series, their early season of bloom was offset by the fact that they also finished their display earlier than most of the other cultivars.  Because their period of ornamental display is earlier than most, cutting the plants back in mid-July was probably too late to have any effect.
