Plant of the Month – January 2023
Coreopsis Zagreb (Coreopsis verticillata ‘Zagreb’) or Threadleaf Coreopsis is a beautiful and durable addition to the garden. A tough and compact perennial that grows 1-2’ tall and wide. This perennial is covered in a profusion of small daisy-like yellow blossoms from early to late summer. In addition to the continual show of color, its airy clumps of fine, threadlike foliage on upright stems add a charming texture element to the garden.
It prefers full sun but will welcome a touch of shade in hot summer areas of the landscape. Another benefit of this plant is its low water need. This drought-tolerant perennial thrives in poor, sandy, and rocky soils. It is easy to grow, mostly pest and disease free. This coreopsis is a favorite of bees and butterflies but is ignored by the deer.
Coreopsis Zagreb can be used as a border plant, naturalized areas, slopes, cottage gardens, an accent plant, and a star performer in a mass planting.
