Coreopsis

‘Enchanted Eve’

 

‘Red Elf’

‘Darling Clementine’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s an idea you cannot afford to pass up –

Take any of the Li’l Bang Coreopsis varieties listed below. Transplant 72 cell liners into 1 gallon containers now for retail ready pots in 6-8 weeks.

These well branched compact and easy to grow varieties are sterile and flower until the first hard frost.

This is a great alternative to the traditional mum market.

Any unsold pots can be sold the following spring –

 

Coreopsis
  1512 Darling Clementine (+0.25) 72’s 0.98
    864 Daybreak (+0.25) 72’s 0.98

  1152 Red Elf (+0.25) 72’s 0.98
