Coreopsis grandiflora ‘Early Sunrise’

3 Photos


Coreopsis grandiflora ‘Early Sunrise’ has bright yellow flowers with twice the normal number of petals, giving it an almost pompom shape. ‘Early Sunrise’ was a prolific bloomer when it was healthy; however, the plants struggled after the first winter. Only three plants returned the following spring (2013) and those suffered from downy mildew. By the end of 2013, all of the plants were dead.
