This Coreopsis is an evergreen groundcover. Clumps are 6 to 9 inches tall while flowering stems may be up to 18 inches tall. This Coreopsis is perfect for naturalizing along woodland margins or in light shade. The plant forms colonies by means of underground stolons so give it room to spread. The primary virtue of this plant is the masses of bright yellow daisy-like flowers coming in April through June.
