Sunshine yellow, daisy like flowers bloom in abundance for months on end. The petals have a decorative, mahogany banding.

Coreopsis ‘Heliot’ is a Fleuroselect* gold medal winner which is the penultimate award for an ornamental plant.

Coreopsis ‘Heliot’ is a compact cultivar that is easy to grow and their straight stems make them ideal for cutting. Doing this also encourages more blooms.

In the middle of summer, as flowering slows, you can cut Coreopsis ‘Heliot’ right back to the base once the first flush of flowers has finished, then add some fertiliser to encourage a second flush. Then again after the final flush of blooms, to maintain compact, healthy growth.

The foliage of Coreopsis ‘Heliot’ is light to mid green, to around 10cm at the base. It grows up the stem but is at is most dense towards the base.

Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Choose a full sun to lightly shaded position.
