WOW! I always get excited when a new "industry standard" hits the market, and such is the case with Coreopsis 'Sweet Dreams'. This amazing new hybrid of Coreopsis rosea from Mark Leonard of The Flower Mill in California combines the new pink color with the old habit of the more familiar, upright coreopsis. The result is a phenomenal new hybrid that grows like vigorous Coreopsis 'Moonbeam' with thread-like foliage and topped from midsummer until fall with a barrage of dark pink flowers that lighten toward the petal tips. Each flower is highlighted by a yellow button in the middle. This is a major breakthrough in perennial breeding...don't miss out on your chance to have some sweet dreams in your garden. Cut the plants back hard about a month before frost for better survivability.
