The Q&A Archives: Coreopsis Pruning

Question: Last year I planted a Coreopsis moonbeam for the first time, it was beautiful. Do I have to prune the plant down or will it grow new flowers on the existing stems?

Answer: You can easily groom coreopsis by cutting off all of the spent flowers (and their stems). If you do this early in the spring, new stems and flowers will appear. If you cut everything back in mid-summer, you get a second flush of bloom. Prune your coreopsis all the way down now and new foliage will sprout when the weather warms.
