| ||Common Name: Coreopsis-Threadleaf|
A sport of the ever-popular 'Moonbeam', 'Moonray' PP21931 produces masses of light creamy yellow blossoms atop airy clumps of fine, needle-like foliage. The plants bloom all summer long for three continuous months and are vigorous growers just like 'Moonbeam'.
This plant adds a beautiful finely textured element to the garden and combines well with other pastel colored perennials such as Campanula c. 'Pearl Light Blue'.
Coreopsis is one of the easiest perennials to maintain and is a good choice for beginners. It compliments nearly every other plant in the garden. The verticillata species is particularly long-lived, has a longer flowering time, and demonstrates better drought tolerance than others in the genus.
