Coreopsis 'Sunshine Superman' (Coreopsis pubescens 'Sunshine Superman')

Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils with good drainage. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prompt deadheading of spent flower stalks encourages additional bloom and prevents any unwanted self-seeding. Plants are somewhat short-lived and self-seeding helps perpetuate a good planting in the garden. Plants may be cut back hard in summer if foliage sprawls or becomes unkempt. When grown in borders or other formal garden areas, division may be needed every 2-3 years to maintain robustness.

‘Sunshine Superman’ may be grown and or propagated from seed, and may self-seed in the garden. Plants of this new variety are not reliably winter hardy throughout USDA Zone 5.
