Mercury Rising Coreopsis?

Of course each year there are 'newer and better' (well maybe just "newer") offerings and this seems particularly true for echinacea and coreopsis. Anyways in my winter web surfing I have been seeing this new coreopsis. But maybe in fact it was available this past summer. Has any GW member had experience with "Mercury Rising"?

RE: Mercury Rising Coreopsis?

Can't tell you anything about it yet but I have it ordered for spring. Planted two other of the big bang series last spring. In year one they were very healthy (no midew) and bloomed well all season. This winter is really been dry so hopes are high they will return. It's those wet freeze thaw winters that kill my coreopsis and echinacea. Pretty sure I'm going to put mercury rising in a pot and place with daylilies. Then when winter starts I can place the pot in the shed cause I'm tired of losing them in wet soggy winters. That is of course IF it ever rains here again. Heres hoping for gentler weather for farmers and us gardeners this season. Pat
