Coreopsis 'Star Cluster' Description
AVAILABLE SPRING 2020!
Coreopsis Star Cluster represents one of the best of the new drought tolerant groundcovers on the market today.
Originating from world-famous breeder, Darrell Probst who brings us this amazing new coreopsis that doesn't know when to stop blooming!
Star Cluster forms a a spreading, neat clump of dark green foliage. Early summer bring on hundreds of prolific crisp daisy-like white flowers with a gold button center. Tidy petals have a pencil-thin outline of purple which compliment the dark purple eye.
Plants are tightly packed with lots of branching. Deer leave it along, but butterflies find it irresistible.
As temperatures warm, the purple color dissipates but returns during the cooler days of fall. Plants continue to bloom well into fall without the need for deadheading!
Coreopsis love full sun, good drainage and take the heat & drought effortlessly. Star Cluster has low water needs yet blooms up to 5 months. This sun loving drought proof perennial groundcover will help transform trouble spots in your garden with little effort.
