Thread-leaved tickseed (Coreopsis verticillata ‘Moonbeam’)
kor-ee-OP-sis ver-tiss-ill-LAY-tah
Genus:  Coreopsis
'Moonbeam' produces star-like blossoms of pale yellow from late spring into autumn. This cultivar is widely used because the refreshing tint of yellow compliments so many colors. The finely textured foliage adds interest all season long.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  It looks good in drifts; site next to plants with contrasting foliage. 
Care:  Grow in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Deadhead in mid-summer to encourage rebloom and prevent self-sowing. It is tolerant of a variety of soils. It thrives on poor soils and is tolerant of heat, humidity, and drought. 
Propagation:  Sow seed in mid-late winter at 55° to 61°F; divide in early spring.
Problems:  Slugs, snails, bacterial spot, rust, Botrytis flower blight, aster yellows, powdery mildew, downy mildew, and fungal spots.
