I've been read that Coreopsis 'Moonbeam' is often short lived (2yrs) because it flowers so profusely it wears itself out. Has anyone experienced this? I've never had any success growing coreopsis from cuttings (this cultivar said to be sterile from seed) so I'd love to hear if anyone has any tips other than normal propagation practice. I'm gardening in S.E.Scotland so my cuttings need to survive in the house (unheated room usuall 12-14 degrees) or the coldframe. Thanks

Interesting comments and information re Coreopsis 'Moonbeam'. I have had a similar experience and now have to replace the two plants which had flowered so beautifully for two years. I live in the South of England where the climate is just a little bit kinder to the plants and yet that made no difference. I do not have a greenhouse but did try taking cutting with poor results. Looks as though I will be planning a trip to the nursery to purchase some new plants!
