    Comments about High Country Gardens Coreopsis grandiflora Sunray:

    Sunray was big and beautiful the first summer (2016) after planting. I have pea gravel mulch in my backyard because my 3 dogs don't dig in it. Not all plants do well with sun-baked hot rocks around them. Fortunately, Sunray performed beautifully with a lot of flowers. I deadheaded which prolonged bloom time. My dogs didn't bother it either. Great xeric plant!

        Comments about High Country Gardens Coreopsis grandiflora Sunray:

        Coreopsis is great for sunny spaces without a lot of water. The soil doesn't have to be the best either. No need to water frequently, usually normal rainfall is enough. I planted sunray years ago and still have wonderful bunches of flowers every year. Because they are low they are great in the front of my garden.

        Q & A

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
