Bright Yellow and Dark Green

The Coreopsis ‘Early Sunrise’, Coreopsis grandiflora, is a definite superstar among yellow flowers. This All-American Selections Gold Medal Award Winner has yellow flowers flush to orange-yellow near the center. 

The 2” blooms are crowded atop a neat, compact 24-inch plant!  In the Tickseed family, the dark green thread leaf foliage makes a great contrast with the flower color. ‘Early Sunrise’ is a frog and hedgehog attractor.

‘Early Sunrise’ blooms at least 3 weeks before most others; blooms June through October. It should be planted in full sun and is drought-tolerant and tough, but does need well-drained soil.  It should be cut back early and late summer to extend the bloom period.

Coreopsis ‘Early Sunrise’ looks great with any type of grass, in borders or mass plantings in sunny gardens. Coreopsis is easy to grow making it a great plant for the beginning gardener.

It is a hardy plant, but may need some protection in harsher climates. Since it thrives in poor soil and has low water needs, ‘Early Riser will easily add beauty to any trouble spot in your garden!
