Star Cluster Tickseed

Coreopsis 'Star Cluster'

This is a new introduction (2010) to the Big Bang Series of Coreopsis. The delicate shading and general refinement of this flower looked good. Coreopsis is a nice perennial that can handle some tough conditions and still thrive. There are many types that are useful in the garden. 'Star Cluster' is the result of intensive breeding and is a combination of at least 8 different species. A real mutt by the sounds of it. The cooler the blooming temperatures the more colored ‘eye’ the flowers have. In autumn the purple can appear on the outer edge of the petals too. There is probably a technical term for that but I don’t know it.
