Coreopsis verticillata Moonbeam * Threadleaf Tickseed

Coreopsis verticillata Moonbeam lights up a garden with the pale yellow flowers. The fine foliage is a plus in a small garden. The fine texture makes the place feel bigger. Coreopsis Moonbeam is a bit of a bother to cut out the blooms as they pass. It is worth it if there aren't too many plants in your garden. Coreopsis Moonbeam gets cut nearly to the ground for the Winter. I try to mix things up so if you chop down something for the Winter there isn't a huge gap. Coreopsis is a plant for the Butterfly Garden attracting the Painted Lady, Great Purple Hairstreak, and Mormon Metalmark
