The deer nibbled on some of these coreopsis tinctura when they first started growing in the spring, but they persevered and are now full of blooms.
I love how they look against the structure of the grey Gopher plant.
This is in the bed planted outside our back fence where there is no irrigation. Once or twice a month in the middle of the scorching summer heat and drought I drag an extra long hose out there and water a little. It's my drought- tolerant test bed. These are REAL drought conditions.
We've had lots of fall and spring rain, so the plants are quite happy -- for now!
