Tips For Growing Coreopsis (Tickseed)
Coreopsis (Tickseed) are long-blooming native wildflowers that are easy-to-grow and provide ample nectar for butterflies. They're resistant to browsing rabbits and deer.
Coreopsis can be divided into two groups that have different growing requirements: Coreopsis grandiflora and Coreopsis verticiliata (Threadleaf Tickseed) cultivars and hybrids.
1. Coreopsis grandiflora types (Tickseed) - these cultivars are generally grown from seed and are a short-lived perennial (3 to 4 years).
Preferred growing conditions:
2. Coreopsis verticillata (Threadleaf tickseed) and hybrids - These are long-lived perennials that spread by rhizomes to form wide, dense growing clumps.
Threadleaf tickseed plants are often late to wake in spring from dormancy, so don't worry when other neighboring perennials wake up first.

Both Died in Second Year
from Parker, CO
I bought two of these. I planted them in early spring, and by mid-summer they were gorgeous. They ever turned pink though...they were yellow with dark middles. One died that fall. It went from gorgeous to dead. I think it may have drowned... The second one started coming up this spring, but just looked weak a puny. We got a late freeze, and that ended it. Guess it wasn't meant to be. I have very heavy clay soil, which I amended with composted horse manure. Most of my plants do great in it, but these guys didn't seem to appreciate it. I think they may be happier in something fluffier. Even though they didn't work for me, I'd still recommend trying them. They were gorgeous and full while in bloom. I just think they didn't like my soil.

About Me Master Gardener
I planted this plant in one of my larger flowerbeds as an experiment to see if it will come back the next year - I will have to wait until spring to find out. If it survives, I would like to plant several more.

Wow I planted this in the spring and by mid summer it was huge with lots of flowers! It looked like it was 3 plants instead of just one. Pretty.

Waiting for next year
from Colorado Rockies
About Me Getting Started
Really liked the catalog description; but this first year it was pretty small and didn't flower much or for very long. I'm waiting, hopefully, to see how it does in a second year.

Great plant for flower bed.
