About Coreopsis Sunfire
Butterflies adore this sun-loving flower. Coreopsis Sunfire bloom all season while resisting the heat of summer. I particularly love the fact that they are so easy to grow and make a great addition to a children’s garden. The flowers have double petals with burgundy eyes. Coreopsis Sunfire is so sweet! Washington State University lists Coreopsis as a deer resistant plant.
Planting and Growing Coreopsis
Make sure your Coreopsis “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions 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!
