    Coreopsis 'Moonbeam' is a selected form of the southeastern native, C. verticillata, which grows in dry, open woods. Two foot clumps are made of very finely dissected foliage giving the plant a delicate texture. Soft yellow daisy-like flowers appear from May to July and can be prolonged by occasionally shearing the spent flowers off. Grow the plant in full sun and average soil. Cut the whole clump to half its height in early May for an even more compact plant. It is neat and tidy and so well behaved that it was chosen to be the Perennial Plant Association's plant of the year for 1992.
