Vibrant orange blooms cover compact, rounded perennials. Fiery sunset orange flowers have intense red-orange color concentrated at the centers of the petals. The undersides of its petals are golden yellow, with some petal tips displaying the same golden yellow. The flowers will cover the gray-green, threadleaf foliage for a showy midsummer display.

Coreopsis is easy to grow, making it a good choice for beginners. One plant will provide long-lasting cut flower bouquets all summer long.

The pure native Coreopsis verticillata is a larval host for Silvery Checkerspot Buckeyes. This hybrid might provide larval host food but will also support nectaring butterflies, including Buckeye, Viceroy, Eastern Tailed-Blue, Spring Azure, Pearl Crescent, Orange Sulfur, American Copper, Red Admiral. Plant them both to provide food for all!
