Coreopsis ‘Strawberry Lemonade’

Summary

Coreopsis ‘Strawberry Lemonade’ struggled with powdery mildew, especially during the first year of the trial. However, its bright chartreuse foliage does add several weeks of ornamental appeal even before flowering begins. Cutting  back some of the plants in mid-July did help to promote a flush of new growth but failed to create a second round of flowering.
