Coreopsis rosea 'American Dream'
A very useful spreading perennial that will form decent clumps and flower for months throughout summer. Very fine foliage, soft to touch, and well-branched upright stems bearing masses of cute pink daisy flowers with golden yellow centres, to 4cm across. This plant spreads a bit like a groundcover, so is useful for massed plantings. Trim back the spent flowers with a hedge clipper in late summer - further watering may encourage a fresh flush of flowers. Prefers full sun and normal soils. Flowering size 30-60cm high, spreads up to 60cm. 9cm pot.
