Coreopsis verticillata 'Sienna Sunset'

This new variety was discovered as a sport of 'Crème Brulee' at Sunny Border Nurseries.  It shares all the same terrific qualities as its parent such as a long bloom time and large flowers, but produces rich burnt sienna colored blooms.  The flowers lighten a bit to peach as they age.  Butterflies adore this plant!
