COREOPSIS VERTICILLATA 'ROUTE 66'

I've grown and enjoyed many Coreopsis along the way, but this one is probably my new favorite.
Route 66 was discovered growing at a nursery in Pennsylvania. It was kept alive by the owners from year to year in the hopes of sharing it with the world.
I'm glad they did.
I can't give it a wink yet because it is my newest flower.
I'll tell you next year if it grows well here in Texas.
In the meantime I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I'm joining Lisa for Macro Monday. You can take Route 66 or many other roads to get to her fine blog.
That's it for today. 
Thanks for stopping by.
