Coreopsis Route 66
The Coreopsis 'Route 66', Coreopsis verticillata 'Route 66', was discovered in 2005 by Patti Bauer. This new threadleaf coreopsis bears big, bold yellow flowers with a rich ring of burgundy around the crown that bleeds out to the tips of each petal.
The narrow, deep-green foliage forms vigorous, uniform clumps. It is easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun.
'Route 66' performs well in poor, sandy or rocky soils with good drainage; tolerant of heat, humidity and drought.
It is effective in borders, naturalized areas, wild gardens, or cottage gardens. Cut back in late summer to encourage regrowth and rebloom.
It over winterizes well and is reliable in harsh climates. It comes back vigorously each year. Coreopsis is one of the easiest perennials to maintain and is a good choice for beginners.
It will complement nearly every other plant in your garden!
