The early bird gets the…Sales!
There’s early…and then there’s Double the Sun! This bright newcomer is 2 to 3 weeks earlier than our Early Sunrise and other comparable varieties in the early cool season. In Summer, it finishes 1 to 2 weeks earlier. Get this favourite perennial class into the store before any other compact, semi-double yellow coreopsis, and listen as those registers ring.

Plug crop time: 5 to 7 weeks
Transplant to finish: 9 to 12 weeks

  • Semi-double, clear golden yellow flowers are the same large, 2.5-in./6-cm size as SunKiss and Early Sunrise, and bigger than Sun Up and Sunfire.
  • Great controlled habit with strong flowering.
  • Ideal for quart and 1-gallon production in Spring and Summer with 13-hour critical daylength. For 2-gallon and larger containers in Summer, Early Sunrise is the optimal choice.
  • Suggested substitution for discontinued Sun Up.
