Coreopsis ‘Autumn Blush’
This hardy hybrid out of C. auriculata 'Nana' begins flowering in the late spring with 2″ strawberry-eyed, butter-yellow flowers. Flowers form a mid-height canopy of color, which changes as the season progresses. Cooler temperatures of fall tint the flowers a strawberry-pink. Continuous flower production and vigorous growth have made 'Autumn Blush' destined to become one of American gardeners' favorite plants.
