Especially large, white flowers with a burgundy star-shaped eye are produced for several months beginning in early summer, with the eye expanding to cover more of the petal surface in cooler temperatures. Since the flowers are sterile, they just keep on coming all season long without the need for deadheading.
This plant forms a compact mound of medium green foliage that is highly mildew resistant. A midseason shearing will keep it looking its best all season.
If you’ve been pleased with the performance of Big Bang™ Coreopsis like ‘Mercury Rising’, you might also like to try the Li'l Bang™ series from the same breeder, master hybridizer Darrell Probst. These naturally compact cultivars exhibit the same great disease resistance and long bloom time (commencing a bit earlier than the Big Bangs) but measure in at about half the height. They are the perfect size for container gardening, rock gardens, and the front of the border.
