Coreopsis –
is a wonderful, maintenance-free perennial which shines its way through any garden with richly coloured flowers all summer long. You can have a country garden or be a city-garden enthusiast, coreopsis will still have features suitable for your landscape.

Enchanted Eve is a hybrid
with eight different species in its parentage. It makes short, only about 20-30 cm long stems with daisy-like, rich yellow flowers with mahogany red flares. They come out from late June until early autumn. Deadheading is usually required with most other tickseeds, however, Enchanted Eve is an improvement as it does not need it and will still continue making new flowers until October. It forms a bushy clump with healthy, light to mid green, narrowly lanceolate leaves with two narrow lobes at the base. It is not invasive seeding itself around like some other tickseed species. Enchanted Eve has fragile stems, be careful when working around it in high season.

Coreopsis will grow in almost any soil apart from boggy and heavy clay, and as it withstands drought it is popular for rockeries. Making it a glowing feature in your perennial bed is the reasonable and expected way of using it. But placing it among shrubs with different foliage and flowers will mean an honour for this easy to grow and affordable beauty. Fully hardy to about -30°C (USDA zone 5a), possibly a little more.
