Early Sunrise Coreopsis

Common name:Early Sunrise Coreopsis

The 'Early Sunrise' is a wonderful cultivar and showy, southern U.S. native. Golden yellow, double flowers on 18" tall bushy plants bloom from June to September in full sun and average to dry soils. It's a bit shorter than other cultivars. It makes for good cut flowers, and pruning keeps the plants abundant with blooms.

Botanical name:Abelia X grandiflora

Abelia X grandiflora is a semi-evergreen shrub of medium size. It has small, white, fragrant flowers that bloom from spring through the fall season. Bracts add a bronzy tint to the flowers. Abelia makes a good sheared hedge or screen. When unsheared, it is naturally arching.
