'American Dream' is a low-growing cultivar that spreads well in the garden, particularly in average soils with low fertility. An excellent North American native to attract butterflies to pollinator gardens. Deer resistant. (Coreopsis rosea)

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).

Plant Information
(8-16" tall x 36-48" wide) Though it looks sweet, blush pink 'American Dream' Coreopsis is anything but delicate. The tough foliage of this North American native creates a feathery green carpet in late spring. By midsummer, you'll see a crop of cheery rosy-pink flowers with yellow centers. Coreopsis is highly deer resistant, and very attractive to pollinators such as bees and butterflies. Plant along the edges of meadows and beds or along tough hillsides for maximum effect. Great cut flower for wild, natural bouquets. Plant 'American Dream' in average, well-drained soil in a sunny site, and be sure to keep it well-watered during the first year, so that it can properly establish. After the first year, it will be low maintenance, quite drought tolerant and able to stand up to rough conditions. At 8-16" tall, 'American Dream' is a low grower and spreads readily through underground rhizomes (horizontally growing stems), widening to 36"-48" within a few years. (Coreopsis rosea)
