Summary

Coreopsis grandiflora ‘Presto’ is a petite cultivar with numerous semi-double flowers in early summer. Unfortunately, the plants did not survive the first winter and were replaced with new plants the following spring. Downy mildew became a problem during the second year and completely killed the new plants by midsummer.
