DYER'S COREOPSIS

Coreopsis.jpeg

Description

The bushy coreopsis plants with their multi-coloured flowers are a joy to have in the garden. The deep orange colour they produce makes up for the effort of picking such tiny flowers.

Experiments

We have experimented with dying on wool and cotton. Coreopsis produces deep orange, sometimes reddish colours. We have seen some exquisite eco-printing done with coreopsis.
