Coreopsis Cosmic Eye Description

Coreopsis Cosmic Eye is the best yet! Talk about striking color, mildew resistance,long bloom time and overall garden performance! 

Cosmic Eye has low water needs and can thrive from poor to rich soil.  This sun loving drought proof groundcover will help transform trouble spots in your garden while providing easy to grow beauty!

Blooming begins in early summer and continues well into the cool months of fall. In fact, according to breeder Darrell Probst,  "Cosmic Eye produces more and more flowers as the season progresses!"

Hundreds of large 2" single claret-red daisy-like flowers are tipped in golden sunshine yellow on top of healthy, mid green threadleaf foliage.  Talk about eye-catching -- even from across the garden!

They love full sun and take the heat & drought effortlessly. Tightly packed with lots of branching, there is no pampering required! Deer leave it alone, but butterflies find it irresistible.


Use as a groundcover to flow around other plants such as long-blooming red-flowered KnockOut Roses, blue-flowered Geranium Rozanne groundcover, drought-proof Sedums!

Ideas and How-to's



Soil: Plant in moist, well drained soil. Thrives in a wide range of soils.
Light: Full Sun
Water: Average to Moist. Water weekly, or more often in extreme heat, until established. Watering may be reduced after establishment.
Spacing: 12-16 inches
Fertilizing: Seldom needs fertilizing if soil is good to average. On very poor soils, can feed lightly with a general purpose, or timed release fertilizer (such as "Osmocote"), before new growth begins in spring.
Winterizing: No special care needed. Remove spent foliage in spring before new growth appears.
Maintenance & Pruning: For repeated bloom, shear old flowers.
