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.

Illico® is a compact variety with 20-30 cm long stalks bearing profusion of golden yellow flowers from June till August. Deadheading will enhance the flowering but is not a must. It flowers abundantly every year. Its leaves are blue-green to green, wider than on thread-leaf varieties.

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. 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 -27°C (USDA zone 5).
