Coreopsis Grandiflora Blossom

Marie Iannotti

Here in Western MA, zone 5, I love each and every coreopsis. They make the loveliest mounds, they bloom over the entire summer and fall season, there are lots of colors to choose from (mostly shades of yellow, but I have a beautiful raspberry and white one) and they can be split into five or six smaller plants every 2-3 years so you can spread them around or share them!
