Plant Type: Perennials
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.
