Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam'
Exposure: Full sun
Bloom Time/Color: June-August; yellow
Uses: Massing, borders, naturalize, edging, rock gardens
Other: Deer resistant, attracts butterflies
Threadleaf coreopsis is one of our most popular choices for Midwest gardens because of its length of bloom, hardiness, and vigor. Plants thrive on neglect and are at home in poor soils; tolerating drought, heat, and humidity. 'Moonbeam' has pale yellow daisy-like flowers that cover the plants through the summer like a mist and are held above, compact thread-like dark green foliage. Coreopsis is virtually disease and insect resistant and is not palatable to deer. Looks best when massed or left to naturalize and makes great accent plants for the rock garden. 'Moonbeam' was the Perennial Plant of the Year in 1992.
