Coreopsis ‘RP #5’ (Mango Punch)

3 Photos


Summary

Coreopsis ‘RP #5’ is commonly sold as Mango Punch.  This cultivar rated well despite its floppy habit because it was such a prolific bloomer over nearly the entire summer.  Mango Punch also proved to have fair powdery mildew resistance.  Cutting back some of the plants in mid-July did provide a modest improvement in the floral display, but was most significant in stimulating a new flush of foliage that helped the cutback plants look healthier for a longer period of time.
