Coreopsis stopped blooming
This seems peculiar. I picked up a mature clump of coreopsis, Baby Sun I believe - it's the shorter one that doesn't flop, from a place that sells them right out of the ground.
I've bought a lot of plants from there and they've always been just fine.
This was in June. The plant already had buds on it and proceeded to bloom. It was a little unhappy with the transplant, so I picked off a lot of the flowers at first. Then it flowered just fine for a couple of weeks, although each bloom was very short-lived.
Now it has stopped. There are dozens of buds on the plant, but they won't open. Not one. They aren't rotting off, either.
A friend also bought a clump on the same day. Hers is doing the same, so this can't be a cultivation issue. Mine gets about four-five hours of direct sun a day and bright/dappled shade thereafter, hers is in full sun pretty much all day.
Does anyone know why this plant would be taking a break?
