Coreopsis lanceolata – Golden Tickseed
Fields of golden flowers appear across large areas of North America in late Spring, the arrival of Lanceleaf Coreopsis blooms adds a yellow hue to the landscape.
Grown direct from seed sown in fall the coreopsis seeds are ready to germinate as weather and growing conditions improve.
Coreopsis performs well in a garden or wild meadow setting, producing masses of golden-yellow flowers with a red-tinged center.
Lance shaped leaves create a lush background to the abundant blooms.
Adaptable to moist or dry conditions the golden tickseed as it is commonly known continues flowering until the first frost if dead-headed often or will self-seed freely.
Loved by nectar hungry pollinators the cheerful flower of Coreopsis is best sown directly where it is to flower.
Best results are achieved if fall sowed giving the seeds a natural stratification, to aid germination and improve overall results including plant health.
Coreopsis should be one of the first native seeds on your must-have plant list, great for beginners and reliable for a great Summers floral display.
Popular with an array of pollinators, particularly butterflies and bees, and plentiful seed for fall birds.
Harvested from my own pollinator-friendly plants these sun-loving lanceleaf coreopsis make a cheerful addition to any butterfly or wildflower garden.
Thriving on poor soils in full sun, on the prairie, or at home in the cottage garden, plant with Rudbeckia, Solidago, and Grasses.
