One of Our
Favorite Plants:

Early Sunrise Coreopsis


This bright plant loves full sun and is fairly heat tolerant. It also offers brilliant long-lasting color.

It grows up to 24 inches (60 cm) tall, and up to 26 inches (65 cm) wide.

Hardy to USDA Zone 5, which means it can take an average annual temperature no lower than minus 20° to minus 10° Faranheight.

So if your area drops below minus 20° at any time of the year, you may want to treat this plant more as an annual.

Fertilize Container Plants

Because container gardens are usually grown to show off a lot color, the plants in them require more frequent fertilizing.

It's good to feed them every two weeks with a water-soluble complete fertilizer like a 20-20-20 or a hyrdolized fish fertilizer.

Regular feeding will help them fill in faster, and produce more flowers.
