Several first year flowering Coreopsis grandiflora were recently honoured with a Gold Medal and the new Presto fits perfectly in this group. What does make Presto unique is its flowers in combination with its natural short habit. The plant is so called semi-double, but produces more double flowers than any other and continues to flower over a significantly longer period. This and Prestos perfect ball shape of 20 cm diameter and height gives it a totally new look and makes ‘Presto’ both a perfect bedding plant as well as a unique pot plant.
