Mouse Ear Coreopsis is loaded with brilliant bright orange flowers that are a great source of early spring color. Deep green, shiny leaves form a low clump and planted closely they will keep weeds to a minimum. This plant spreads nicely by seed without being invasive, and works well in a border or edge, or as a shorter cut flower. This compact plant stays under 1 foot tall flowers included. It puts on a great early spring bloom. It will continue to flower into the summer if the flowers are removed.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Grow this little Coreopsis in full sun or part shade in average to dry well drained soils. Though less tolerant of drought than most Coreopsis, it still does considerably well in dry soils. Easy to grow.
