Description
Heaven's Gate is a particularly beautiful hybrid with rose pink petals that deepen in hue toward the center, and carry small flashes of gold. The plant grows only 18 inches tall.

North American Native Wildflowers: Our beautiful wild Coreopsis species, and how they've been improved. The Coreopsis group is one of the great gifts of North America to the plant world. Almost all the species of Coreopsis that the world now knows and loves are North American native wildflowers. The following ones are particularly famous, and all these are native over most of the eastern states.

Plains Coreopsis, C. tinctoria, also called Calliopsis, is a much-loved wild annual and is a mainstay of wildflower meadow seed mixtures. (See seed in our Wildflower Encyclopedia)
Lanceleaf Coreopsis, C. lanceolata is the famous perennial golden daisy that decorates fields over almost the whole east. (See seed in our Wildlfower Encyclopedia)
The Rosy Coreopsis, C. rosea is another wild perennial which is finer-leaved than Lanceleaf, and has been hybridized into some of the best new colors and forms.
Thread Leaf Coreopsis, C. verticillata is a small delicate-appearing perennial wildflower with fine leaves and stems. This one has been made into many popular garden hybrids, most famous being Moonbeam, a huge hit when it hit the gardening market.
Tickseed Coreopsis C. grandiflora is a common southern native and has golden flowers 1 to 2 1/2 inches across.

Since these wonderful plants are North American natives, their hybrids are right at home in your perennial gardens.

      This coreopsis was a great addition to the varieties that I already have. It did well in the heat and required some deadheading.

        Comments about American Meadows Coreopsis rosea Heaven's Gate - Plant:

        I was extremely pleased with the color, flowering time and size of these plants. They were shipped with care but at first the plants looked a bit small for the money. Was I wrong! The plants thrived in my not so great, clay soil and grew quickly. I would highly recommend them.

              Comments about American Meadows Coreopsis rosea Heaven's Gate - Plant:

              The plants are extremely nice, but it is not possible to evaluate them fully until they have been planted and have time to develop.

              The packing was excellent. It would be nice to have biodegradable potting materials.

              The plant selection at American Meadows is extensive. Many of the items available are not available else where, e.g. pink balloon flower.
