Q.What Types Of Coreopsis Bloom The First Year?
I’d like to plant a perennial coreopsis this spring, and still have blooms this summer. Is there any variety where this will work? (I will not be swowing from seed, but planting a bedding plant.) I heard that “early sunrise” already blooms in the year of planting… Any other suggestions are welcome too! Thank you

If you are buying nursery plants, the best thing to do will be to catch them before they bloom for the year and plant them. They will bloom as usual.
If you do not catch it in time, then planting in early autumn will ensure flowering the following year.
Unfortunately, flowering for the Perennial types will be all about timing.
Here is an article that will help to grow the plant:
