Zagreb Coreopsis

Coreopsis Verticillata Zagreb

June 14, 2022
Adams Fairacre Farms

A real workhorse in the perennial border, ‘Zagreb’ will bloom from late June to late August, adding color to the garden during the hottest part of the summer. Bright yellow daisy flowers with a darker yellow disk are tightly grouped above its needle-like green foliage. A compact plant that is more upright and less rounded than its more famous relative Coreopsis ‘Moonbeam’, ‘Zagreb’. It makes a great companion to mingle with other sun lovers since its thin foliage and constant color make it so easy to work with.

Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought, plant ‘Zagreb’ in any sunny border with well drained soil. The bigger the group you plant, the more impressive the summer show! Be sure to give it a quick shearing as flowers fade in August to promote a colorful later September rebloom!
