Coreopsis grandiflora 'Early Sunrise'
One of the first inhabitants of our garden, it has slipped in and out of our borders through the years. But I'm glad that at least as of now, it's cheering up our borders withs its bright yellow flowers in late spring. It's a steady performer, greening up early to provide form to the garden throughout the season.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Eleanor Engelhard||Aug 06, 2008||How should I be caring for coreopsis grandiflora "early sunrise". Some of the stems seem to be "flopping" down,should I remove these and also should I be removing the "spent" flowers and their stems.
Thank you for your help.|
Floppiness might be related to not enough sun or overly rich soil. Once they flop, there's not much you can do to salvage their posture - I would cut those stems down. You can deadhead the coreopsis much like any other perennial, although I never bother.
|Jeanne Powell||Apr 15, 2011||I have Early Sunrise in my yard but it gets some sun but not full sun. The sticker said it was good in part shade to full sun. Is that correct?|
Probably, but I would put coreopsis in full sun if I had the choice. It will almost certainly flower better with that exposure.

I like perennials but don' t want to plant something that is invasive. I live in Boise, Idaho and am wondering if you could tell me if worth planting or take back to store. |
I've never found coreopsis of any kind to be invasive. The seedlings I find are welcome, and easily pulled up if they don't fit where they pop up.
