Coreopsis ‘Sunset Strip’

3 Photos


Coreopsis ‘Sunset Strip’ has large, orange-and-yellow flowers over lacy, threadleaf foliage. ‘Sunset Strip’ suffered from severe powdery mildew and poor vigor throughout the entire trial, and only one plant was alive by the end. However, hardiness was hard to asses in this case, because the plants were so small and distressed that they might have perished simply because they were weak.
