With its clusters of light yellow, daisy-like blooms and its green airy fernlike foliage, 'Moonbeam' Coreopsis blooms from June through October and is mildew resistant. 'Moonbeam' stands at 24" and has a plant spread of 18-24" 'Moonbeam' should be planted in full sun. It is drought-tolerant and tough but does need well-drained soil. It should be cut backing early and late summer to extend the bloom period. Coreopsis 'Moonbeam' looks great with Coreopsis 'Sweet Dreams', and with any type of grass, in borders or mass plantings in sunny gardens. No garden should be without it.
