12-18" tall x 18-24" wide. Coreopsis 'Zagreb' is a long blooming, easy-to-grow perennial with a big display of brilliant golden-yellow flowers beginning in late spring. Drought resistant/drought tolerant plant (xeric).
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.

Keeps Coming Back!
By Kita Kara
I planted this two years ago in a south facing garden with clay soil, zone 6b. It arrived healthy and looked nice. However, I have young children who were not used to having anything in that particular garden bed, and on a couple of occasions the plant suffered casualties from children stepping on it. We also have deer visit our area who like to nibble on it. Despite being eaten/broken down to the base over and over, this little plant kept coming back. Finally, after placing a mesh screen around it for a month or so last year it managed to grow to a respectable size and looked beautiful! When I went to look on it this spring I saw that it had been eaten down to the main shoot again by deer. I was disappointed at first, but then noticed numerous small shoots coming up around it. I anticipate it will come back and flower beautifully again this year.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Avid Gardener
The first set of 3 came in my Jumbo Waterwise Garden. They seemed dead, but the instructions said they often LOOK dead but are not. I planted them following the instructions. While the plants around them grew and thrived, they did NOTHING. Called Customer Service, and was told to wait a couple more weeks. Still NO GROWTH. Called Customer Service again: they sent out 3 more plants to fill in my JWG. Those 3 ALSO looked dead on arrival, but planted them anyway and crossed my fingers. NOPE. NADA. Will never attempt planting this variety of coreopsis again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Disappointing Growth and Stamina
By Christine's Garden
from Los Alamos, NM
I planted one in early April and four more in mid-June. All plants arrived with very little growth above the crown.The early Spring plant never grew, and I ultimately received a product credit for it. Of the four that I planted in the Summer, two are showing growth above the ground, but no more than an inch. The other two were planted and watered according to the directions, but have not thrived in Zone 7. Go with the Coreopsis Lanceolata Sterntaler instead. Once planted, it took off.

from Kennedy meadows, Ca
First let me state that I love HCG. I have a front bed full of their plants. However, this plant was a real disappointment. I live in the Sierra above 6500 feet. I could not even get the tickseeds to survive in my green house. I does not appear to be a robust plant.
