Creme Brulee has larger flowers and greater vigour than other coreopsis. The stunning deep yellow flowers have attractive serrated petals. Foliage is brighter green and demonstrates better resistance to powdery mildew. Flowers appear not just above the canopy but also farther down the stems, among the lacy leaves, for a fuller appearance.
Flowers primarily in summer on neatly mounded, robust plants. In late summer, cut back plants halfway for rebloom in fall, if desired. Otherwise cut back plants to ground in spring before new growth occurs.
First discovered in Lois Woodhull’s garden on Long Island, and comes to Rozanne and Friends® from June Croon, The Plantage, NY (USA).
Creme Brulee is a featured Rozanne and Friends variety in our “A Colorful Entry” garden design.
