A little background:
Coreopsis 'Crème brûlée' was discovered at the beginning of the 2000s in a private garden in Long Island (New York, USA). It was produced by natural seeding from Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam' and has kept the latter's good points and forgotten the faults.
Further developed by The Plantage (Cutchogue, N.Y) and then by Blooms of Bressingham (GB), it has been available since 2005 in American, European and Japanese nurseries.
This magnificent new hybrid of Coreopsis grandiflora x verticillata is more vigorous, has wider leaves and is more mildew-resistant.
Coreopsis 'Crème brûlée' is a good plant for novice gardeners as it is generous, vigorous and easy to grow.
Flowers from June to the end of September. Shearing one third in mid-season will improve its late summer flowering.
Butterfly-friendly, Coreopsis 'Crème brûlée' will find a spot in all styles of gardens: perennial beds, gravel gardens, borders, path edging, containers and patios.
Grow in the sun in a well-drained, ordinary soil, which can be poor and dry, neutral to alkaline.
