Baby Sun Coreopsis Slow Grower?

dinah9999(6a)July 12, 2014

I planted 3 baby sun coreopsis in mid-May. They are in full sun with well-drained soil and are watered every other day for 20 minutes from an overhead sprinkler system. It's part of a condo irrigation system so the time and frequency can't be changed.

They look healthy but are very slow growing and show no signs of blooming this year. Does this perennial normally reach full height and bloom the first year? My other coreopsis did (Zagreb and Moonbeam) so I'm wondering if this is normal.

Any hints, tips or info would be so appreciated.

Thank you! :-)

If they show no sign of blooming then they either already did before you got them (probably in the greenhouse) or were young plantlets this spring and will not mature till next year.
Their primary period of growth is before bloom.
