Coreopsis ‘Citrine’

A wow plant – so bright, so low, so compact, and so showy. 'Citrine' impressed us with how floriferous and clean it looked all summer long. The flowers appear right on top of the old ones which just disappear. Works well in mass, as edging, or in mixed beds or containers. Many months of exciting color. Low maintenance and easy to grow. One of our most popular introductions!
