Coreopsis ‘RP #1’ (Little Penny)

4 Photos


Coreopsis ‘RP #1’, commonly sold as Little Penny, has an incredibly compact habit. Measuring only 10” tall and wide, Little Penny is the smallest annual cultivar in our trial. The terra cotta flowers are also petite, measuring only ¼” in diameter. The plants were so uniform in shape and densely packed with flowers that they almost looked too good to be real. Little Penny blooms from June through September and would make a fabulous container plant for the patio or deck
