Coreopsis 'Sweet Dreams'
Attractive mounds of delicate, lacy foliage are topped with hundreds of sparkling flowers of soft pink with a raspberry eye.
Closed for 2012.
Taller clumps have heavy spreading stems and sprays of fine ribbon-like foliage. Unique lavender-pink flowers have a deeper raspberry center. Heavy bloomer starting in mid summer and continuing until frost. More tolerant of moist soil than other Tickseeds.
Requires minimal maintenance. Can be cut back after killing frost to tidy-up plant. Flowers are too small to dead-head. Additional fertilization is usually unnecessary.
You are purchasing Coreopsis 'Sweet Dreams' as a commercial growers plug. Although smaller than the typical mail-order plant pots, the plants are often healthier and better-rooted. We have had great success planting these directly into our gardens. Within a month or two plants are indistiguishable from those that were transplanted at a larger size. The smaller pot size allows us to offer these designer plants at significantly discounted prices and low shipping rates. Plants will appear similar to the illustration.
We typically ship on Mondays (during the spring it sometimes takes a couple of days or more to get out all of our orders). Please notify us if your weather is approaching freezing or if it will be above 85 degrees. We do not recommend shipping or planting Coreopsis 'Sweet Dreams' in these conditions.
We guarentee that your Coreopsis 'Sweet Dreams' will arrive healthy and thrive in your garden. Please contact us immediately if your Coreopsis 'Sweet Dreams' arrives damaged in shipping or if your plant fails to thrive within 90 days. We will gladly issue a full refund or send a replacement.
