Coreopsis auriculata nana (‘Elfin Gold’)

Life: Perennial

Size: 3-5" tall, 18-24" wide

Light: Full Sun

Water: Average, Well Drained, Drought Tolerant Once Established

Soil: Average to Poor

C. auriculata nana ‘Elfin Gold’ is a very low growing, 3-5" tall, coreopsis with single, bright golden yellow, daisy-like flowers and small leaves. It blooms heavily in the spring and moderately throughout the summer. Over time it spreads by stolons into mats of dark green foliage, 18-24" across. With cold weather, the foliage often acquires a burgundy cast. Makes a great border plant or groundcover for full sun, average to poor soil that drains well. As with all coreopsis, this one is quite drought tolerant once established.
