Thread leaf coreopsis is a wonderful, maintenance-free perennial which shines its way through any garden with rich-coloured flowers all summer long. You can have a country garden or be a town-garden enthusiast, coreopsis will still have features suitable for your plot.

In the world of tickseed everything seems possible. Even bi-coloured flowers as in the case of Sweet Dreams®. This is another new patented variety from the USA (PP12720) from 2001It has daisy-like flowers, almost 4 cm across, with rich burgundy centres and almost white ends of petals. Its extremely long flowering period begins in early summer and ends in the last warm days of autumn. Deadheading will enhance flowering but is not necessary, it flowers abundantly every year.

The fluffy, thread-like leaves are very decorative on their own yet before the flowers come out. And if you don’t mind me saying that they look like dill (without the scent). The desirable advantage of this variety is that it is not invasive and does not seed itself around like some of the other coreopsis. It forms a dense and compact clump.

It will grow in nearly any soil and as it withstands drought it is popular for rockeries. It seldom grows taller than 30 cm. Making it a glowing feature in your perennial garden 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 and affordable beauty. Fully hardy to -30°C (USDA zone 5).
