Coreopsis  'Tequila Sunrise'
Zoom In Photo:

This coreopsis has continuous blooming, bright yellow flowers with deep orange centers. But what makes this plant special is its foliage. The medium, narrow, green leaves are variegated with creamy yellow and a hint of pink that turns a dark red in the fall. Drought tolerant once established. Deadheading will lengthen the season of bloom.
