I love yellow flowers, they're so sunny bright and cheerful! This particular variety of coreopsis are fully double with a "mop-head" kind of appearance. They are so casual with their ragged edged petals and their strong but wirey stems that bend as they wind their way through the foliage and stems of other plants. In this case the find their way through their companion "Six Hills Giant" catmint with it deliciously scented grey-green foliage and blue-lavendar petite flowers. This is a summer garden at its best!!
