Coreopsis grandiflora 'Sunray' (Coreopsis) - This semi-deciduous perennial (evergreen in southern California) produces mounds of bright green lobed leaves to nearly a foot tall by up to 3 feet wide. Golden yellow flowers are held on stalks to 18 inches tall from April through most of the summer. Plant in sun with moderate to ocassional irrigation. This is a selection of a very hardy plant native to the Great Plains of North America so it should prove hardy to well below 0 F . 'Sunray' was the first perennial ever to win the European Fleuroselect Award in 1980. As with many perennials this plant will benefit from being divided and reset in the fall every one to two years. Cut back plants in mid winter in mild climates.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Coreopsis grandiflora 'Sunray'.
