The late summer/fall garden is all about big and tall, and 'Gold Standard' Tickseed (Coreopsis tripteris ‘Gold Standard’) fits right in with towering stems covered with large bright yellow daisies for several months beginning in late summer. This cultivar was selected by the prestigious Mt. Cuba Center botanic garden of Delaware for its outstanding, strongly upright growth habit and extended bloom time. Vigorous and easy-to-grow Coreopsis 'Gold Standard' loves the sun and grows readily in a wide range of soils including clay. The plant attracts butterflies when blooming and seed-eating songbirds in the fall when the seed ripens. Planted with other tall, late-season blooming perennials such as Joe Pye Weed (Eupatorium), Maximilian's Sunflower (Helianthus), Prairie Switchgrass (Panicum) and Big Blue Stem Grass (Andropogon). These natives provide a stunning conclusion to the growing season and much needed nectar to many different pollinators.
