Plant Features

Moonbeam Coreopsis Plants are colorful beauties that change their wardrobe from spring to fall. The yellow, deeply veined flowers have a vivid red center that bleeds outwards as the seasons progress, changing from being predominantly yellow at first bloom to being almost completely red as fall approaches. You'll love it! Tickseed are easy to grow perennials that tolerate a range of soils, even dry soil in hot sundrenched areas. Once established they are drought tolerant. Butterflies enjoy the nectar while wild birds will eat the seadheads when they are done flowering. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid this plant.

Companion Planting: Aster, Echinacea, Grasses, Penstemon, Salvia

Great plants

We have a spot in our yard where nothing will grow. For twenty years we’ve tried a variety of plants. This year we bought 8 Moonbeam coreopsis and planted them in what we call the dead zone. The coreopsis love it there. They are growing so quickly and blooming beautifully. Grow Joy has the most beautiful quality plants they certainly got a good start. Highly recommend!

I love this plant for the long bloom time and the fact that deer do not like to eat it! Growjoy plants always arrive packed great and safe, ready for a great life!
