Building on his phenomenal BIG BANG™ Series, hybridizer Darrell Probst is ready to introduce a new, shorter cultivar to the pack –‘Cosmic Eye’ PPAF. 

Standing just 12-15” tall, the compact, well-branched plants are about half the height of ‘Full Moon’ and ‘Redshift’. Its healthy mid-green foliage remains attractive all season, with the texture being intermediate between the threadleaf and grandiflora types. 

Loads of large 1½-2”, single, bright sunny yellow blossoms with a prominent burgundy red eye and gold button center are produced over a very long period from early summer through early fall. 

This compact, long blooming Coreopsis makes a colorful specimen in containers and really makes a splash when planted en masse near the front of flower borders.
