    Coreopsis 'Crème Brulee' is a new to the market, bright deep yellow flower that blooms from June through October. In the Tickseed family, 'Crème Brulee' has larger flowers than most Coreopsis in its family. 'Crème Brulee' has a plant height of 24" and a spread of 18". The bright green thread leaf foliage makes a great contrast with the flower color. 'Crème Brulee' should be planted in full sun. It is drought-tolerant and tough but does need well-drained soil. The foliage is mildew-resistant and should be cut backing early and late summer to extend the bloom period. Coreopsis 'Crème Brulee' looks great with Veronica 'Royal Candles' and Leucanthemum 'Becky Daisy', with any type of grass, in borders or mass plantings in sunny gardens. (PPAF)
