Early Sunrise Coreopsis

Coreopsis grandiflora
Perennial to Zones 3. Won 1989 AAS for its ability to bloom weeks earlier than other Coreopsis. Dense well-branched 18" plants are loaded with 2" semi-double vivid golden-yellow blooms loved by syrphid flies, lady beetles, lacewings, parasitic wasps and many other beneficials. Excellent for eco-dyeing, too. Aerial parts of the plant make a burnt sienna with a rusty orange hue. Start indoors 8–10 weeks before setting out in sunny spot, 12–18" apart. Do not cover seed. For cuts, harvest when flowers start to open. Primed seed. About 400 seeds/g. Especially attractive to pollinators.
