Coreopsis (Coreopsis spp.)
Coreopsis Plant FeaturesAmp up the color in your flower borders with coreopsis. This amazing native plant, occasionally called tickseed, develops mass quantities of yellow, orange, rose, lavender, white, or bi-colored flowers through the early summer. Coreopsis is sun-loving, drought-tolerant and highly attractive to hungry butterflies. Most coreopsis varieties grow 18 to 24 inches tall, but dwarf forms that grow only 6-12 inches tall are also available. Use dwarf coreopsis in rock gardens or at the edge of path or walkway. Hardy from zones 4-9.

Coreopsis Growing InstructionsPlant coreopsis in a sunny spot that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun a day. Coreopsis prefers a rich, well-drained soil, but will be fine in poorer, drier conditions. To promote additional blooms, deadhead the plants by clipping away faded flowers. Coreopsis is relatively deer resistant and works well in fresh-cut arrangements. Water whenever the soil feels dry to the touch.
Coreopsis is not intended for human or animal consumption.
