Popular and easy to grow the plains coreopsis has bright yellow petals fading to red in the center.
Glowing like burning embers the flowers of the coreopsis are bi-color and can be grown in any mixed border and various landscapes.
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 plains coreopsis make a cheerful addition to the front of 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.
We hand collect and clean our seeds all freshly collected in 2020 seeds, seed may contain some natural chaff or seed parasols depending on the difficulty level of seed cleaning, we leave plenty for the birds.
Seed Storage and Sowing:
Once you receive your seeds best kept refrigerated for 4 or more weeks (unless Fall sowing) to help break seed dormancy and keep fresh for seasonally appropriate sowing.
Easy to grow, sow seeds direct where you would like them to flower.
Sow outdoors in Fall or Early Spring, approx. pack quantity minimum of 50 seeds see other listings for larger seed quantities (Seed counts are approx. and often way over! We germinate all our own seeds, sell plug plants, and propagation material.)
