Coreopsis (Tickseed)

Coreopsis spp.

Coreopsis is easy to grow, making it a good choice for beginners. One plant will provide you with long-lasting cut flower bouquets all summer long. It’s a great compact plant for borders and containers. Attracts pollinators during the Summer, and its seeds nourish birds throughout the Fall.

Try pairing Coreopsis with purple blooming perennials, like Salvia!
