Although we like the idea of rock stars as gardeners, this cheery hybrid Tickseed was probably named for the famed English agricultural pioneer of the same name (b. 1674). The fluted petals, compact habit, and long bloom time make this Coreopsis a brilliant performer. A beautiful hybrid cross of C. auriculata and C. lanceolata.
