    The blooms of this low-growing Coreopsis are the most interesting shade of yellow. It is almost as if they pulsate with a tinge of orange, but I have never been able to capture this color accurately in a photograph. While they are stunning on their own, the blooms are even more amazing when paired with blue flowers, such as Centaurea.

    I find many Coreopsis plants to be aggressive reseeders. 'Nana' does not reseed for me, but my clumps have grown to a nice size without being overwhelming. It also sports pleasing chubby leaves.
