Intricately Sculpted Blossoms
Although we like the idea of rock stars as gardeners, this cheery golden yellow 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.

Bright and cheery selections will attract butterflies and birds to your garden. Coreopsis are great cut flowers that last up to 2 weeks after being harvested. Superb in the border-reliable. Just give them some sun and enjoy the show. Coreopsis naturalize with ease. Cold hardy, floriferous and easy to grow.

Coreopsis Plant Care

Of the easiest care, likes a hot dry spot. Deadheading (removing spent blossoms) extends blooming, so pick a few for cut flowers while you are in the garden. Leave new fall growth at the base for overwintering. Benefits from division every 2-3 years in spring.
