Since we like our Moonbeam coreopsis so much, we decided a few years ago to get a cousin with a similar look, but with pink-and-yellow daisies. Unfortunately, unlike our trusty perennial 'Moonbeam', this one (named 'American Dream') only stuck around for a year. We recently picked up another one (no cultivar, this time) from a bargain perennial table. With some luck, this more unassuming one will prove hardier.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
