Description
Tequila Sunrise gives you a neat compact plant and a flurry of extra-bright flowers in golden yellow with sparkling red center spots. Best of all, even when its not in bloom, you'll enjoy the beautiful variegated foliage, decorative in the garden all spring, summer and fall.

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.

No sunrise from this tequila

By madigan2901

from Manassas, VA.

Comments about Coreopsis Tequila Sunrise:

Would have liked to rate this very good looking plant, but I never got it. My other plant purchases are still blooming and making a fighting comeback after this past sweltering summer.

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Great for borders

    Comments about Coreopsis Tequila Sunrise:

    I used this as a filler in front of larger plants like bee balm and butterfly weed. It is bright with long bloom time. Very drought resistant which is especially good this year in north MS.
