Coreopsis pubescens ‘Sunshine Superman’

5 Photos


Coreopsis pubescens ‘Sunshine Superman’ is a cultivar that was selected for its compact habit. There is a lot of variability among individuals, but as a seed grown cultivar, such variability is not unexpected. However, what this cultivar lacks in uniformity, it makes up for with its summer-long display of solid gold flowers. Powdery mildew was observed a few times, but the instances were very minor. ‘Sunshine Superman’ proved to be relatively hardy through the first winter – only one plant was lost. But, three additional plants failed to survive the second winter.
