The Mayo Clinic chose this long blooming cheerful yellow flower to recognize their sesquicentennial (150th anniversary). What better color to express the spirit of hope and healing? The bright yellow atop the filigreed blue-green foliage shines like a beacon. Stunning!

This beauty is growing at each of the Mayo Clinic sites as they understand that enjoyment of nature can play a key role in the healing process. Coreopsis Mayo Clinic Flower of Hope™ with its dainty, finely-cut foliage adds texture and an interesting contrast to surrounding perennials. Thread-leaf Tickseed spreads slowly but surely and can be used in a naturalized planting on a sunny bank or in the traditional border. Lovely paired with Echinacea or Campanula. Road salt tolerant.

Coreopsis General Information

Coreopsis verticillata are great cut flowers with its unusual narrow tapered foliage. Free flowering-continuously in bloom from early summer into fall. Spreads readily and can be used on a sunny bank, in a naturalized planting, or in a traditional border. Long blooming and easy to grow, they come in various heights and many shades of yellow, reds, pink, and white.

Coreopsis Plant Care

Prefers a nice sunny well drained spot. Very easy to grow. Remove top one-third of plant with hedge shears after flowering to freshen foliage, if needed. Spreads reliably, so division every 2-3 years may be needed to restrain girth, but only if desired.
