About Coreopsis Baby Sun
Here’s a shorter Coreopsis for the front of the border. The flowers of Coreopsis Baby Sun are loaded with petals of sunny yellow and red fire on the inner edge. Coreopsis will bloom into the fall after the first big flush by occasionally cutting off spent blooms. Coreopsis Baby Sun also attracts butterflies to my garden especially the Monarchs. Washington State University lists Coreopsis as a deer resistant plant.

Planting and Growing Coreopsis
Make sure your Coreopsis “harden off” before planting to prevent shock. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. Clip spent blooms for a continuous flush of flowers!
