Cosmic Eye' may have compact form but the colors of its bloom are a cosmic combo of wine red petals tipped with a clear yellow surrounding an orange center that creates a daisy flower that will draw a crowd of admirers. One of the Big Bang™ series of Coreopsis from American plant breeder Darrel Probst, it is about the shortest selection of this series but with a bloom period that belies its short stature lasting from mid June right on into early October! Its compact form is perfect for grouping in the front of the perennial border and it will be a bust out star in any mixed deck container for full sun. 'Cosmic Eye', with its spectacular bloom and easy to use form along with the pleasing texture of its foliage, will have you looking for every little corner you can find to plant it in your landscape. Well drained soil is the key to making this plant a star in your garden year after year.
Cut dead flowers for lengthened blooming period. Prefers well-drained soil in full sun. Drought tolerant once established. Pull off dead foliage in late fall, being careful not to damage the crown.
