Instant sunshine is yours with the ruffled, semi-double flowerheads in a rich, sunny yellow of Coreopsis Early Sunrise. The bobbled flowers on this daisy-like plant are 5cm across, held on long, thin yet sturdy, branched stems, and appear over a long period from late spring to late summer.
An upright, clump-forming herbaceous perennial, usually grown as an annual, with finely divided, almost thread-like foliage. Attractive to pollinators, it is ideal for wildlife gardens and informal cottage garden borders. Pair with colourful kniphofias, crocosmias, cannas and dahlias.
