  • History & Lore
    History:
    The Cruizin' Series of threadleaf coreopsis developed after Patti Bauer of Bauer's Forever Flowers in Lucinda, PA discovered the 'Route 66' variety growing in her garden in 2005. The Series has since grown from the Route 66 and includes cultivars such as 'Broad Street', 'Electric Avenue' and 'Sunset Strip'. The Cruizin' Series features vibrant reds, golds, and oranges, and are notable for their hardiness.
