Plant Information

Early Sunrise is a great border plant, adding doubled blooms on 2 ft. stems in midsummer. Glossy foliage and a neat habit make it a favorite.

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.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
