One of my favorite work hard – no fuss perennials is Coreopsis verticillata ‘Moonbeam’ or Tickseed, still blooming in my garden after putting on a show (without deadheading) all summer.  It is drought tolerant once established (and needs good drainage), our Greenbank deer don’t seem to like it,  the rabbits nibbled it only in the  spring as the new foliage was emerging but then left it alone.  For combining with other plants, I especially appreciate the see through, fine texture.

 A new cultivar in my garden this year is C. verticillata ‘Sienna Sunset’ which I’m hoping will perform as well.
