Trial Garden

Coreopsis auriculata ‘Nana’

2 Photos


Coreopsis auriculata ‘Nana’ never really thrived in our garden. During the first year the plants were small with a very modest number of flowers. Plant quality declined so much during the first year that only three plants returned the following spring, and they struggled throughout the second year. Leaf spot was observed over several weeks and may have been exacerbated by poor plant quality. The second-year floral display was again dissapointing and the three plants died during the second winter.
