Coreopsis Auriculata - Hardy Perennial

Author: John Wood

Coreopsis Auriculata - Hardy Perennials and Old Fashioned Flowers

Coreopsis Auriculata Described.

Coreopsis Auriculata - Ear-leaved Coreopsis; Nat. Ord. Compositæ.

The oldest species of the genus grown in English gardens; its flowers are yellow, but dotted at the base of the ray florets. The leaves, as implied by the name, are dissimilar to other species, being lobed and having ear-like appendages; but this feature is far from constant, and otherwise the leaves differ, being sub-sessile and oval-lance-shaped. It came from North America as long ago as 1699. Slugs are very fond of these plants, and in winter more especially, when the dormant eyes are not only in a green, but exposed state; they should be watched after, or during one mild night the whole may be grazed off, to the great injury of the plant.

Its habit, uses, culture, and propagation are the same as for C. tenuifolia.

Coreopsis Auriculata

This plant should have a rich soil, sunny aspect, and a raised or well-drained site, and this is all it needs; it is not a subject to increase fast; not only, however, may it be easily divided, but if properly done after the tops have died down, the smallest pieces will make good blooming stock the first season.

Flowering period, August and September.
