  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This lovely, exceptionally showy, long-flowering, pale yellow tickseed is perfect for extending the season of a summer border in sun or partial shade. As long as it's deadheaded regularly, it produces a succession of slender-stemmed, single, daisy-like flowers with orange-yellow centres from June to September. The flowers are also attractive to bees and butterflies.

  • Garden care: Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and water well during hot, dry spells. Cut the faded flower-stems back down to ground level in autumn and compost.

    Comments about Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam':

    I had searched for this plant at every garden centre within fifteen miles of my home with no success. I then turned to the Internet and discovered Crocus. the plant arrived in very good condition, well packed and is now forming a very bright and colourful clump in my front garden along with the deeper variety Zagreb. thank you very much Crocus, and I would definitely use you again.

          The lovely petite yellow flowers last for months and look especially good next to Perovskia 'Little Spire' and lavender.

          Only one survived

          Comments about Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam':

          I ordered three but only one survived last winter. Maybe the waterlogged soil. Also, the plant needs a lot of all over trimming with shears to encourage reflowering as the blooms are much too small for individual deadheading.

              As with all coreopsis, it can last all summer long,
              or decide to halt its development. But when it takes,
              it's a very charming variety in colour and shape.

                First got this plant last year, based on first reviewer's comment that this coreopsis is the only one to survive. I've tried others, and like her they failed to survive. This one, however, has fantastic acid/lemony flowers. The photograph doesn't do it any favours as it normally looks like a delicate yellow hedgehog glowing from the edge of the border. I love it! I've split the clump this spring. Deadheading is definitely worth it, though at times consuming!

                Comes back year after year

                from London

                Lovely little flower that keeps going well into Autumn if you deadhead it (can take a while!). Is also the only Coreopsis that for me comes back every year - have tried others but no luck. Lovely yellow follows that positively glow!

                • Q:

                  I have a Daphne which I bought 5 yrs ago in a tiny 9cm pot. She progressed to various pot sizes but was planted out 2 years ago in a south facing spot near my front door. She has now grown to a small bush with branches and lots of healthy leaves but has up till now refused to flower. Why oh why? One of her branches got broken last summer by an over sized begonia planted in a large pot near her and I managed to root it. That tiny branch sitting in a 9 cm pot did produce a minute flower which I nipped out when it was faded. I now wait with baited breath for flowers on the larger plant and hope that the little one will grow into a small bush. What should I do to make the bigger Daphne happy so she will flower and the tiny one to start producing branches?

                    Hello,

                    These plants resent root disturbance and can often take a few years to settle in before they start to flower - so you have done extremely well getting a flower on your new cutting! They also like to be kept cool and relatively well watered, so as yours is growing in a Southerly aspect, I suspect the reason for the lack of flowers is a lack of water.

                  Advice re numbers please!

                  Hello I have an L shaped area of about 2 square metres to fill and would like colour. The area is sunny and well drained. The plants I am thinking of are Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam', Hemerocallis 'Stella De Oro' and Achillea 'Terracotta'. I have often read that when planting you should plant in groups of 3 but also see that some of these plants should spread to 45 cm. Given the space I have to fill, should I choose 3 of each of these to ensure I have a good show of colour, or start off with one each in the knowledge they will eventually spread? All advice very much appreciated. Bev

                    Hello There, It really depends on how patient you are! I would plant 3 of each as this will ensure a reasonably full display quite quickly and it will also make sure there are no gaps when they all grow together.
