Coreopsis

Tickseed

The Coreopsis we offer are perennials. They share some characteristics with their annual cousins: they are dependable, easy to work with, and make a quick impact. Though they often play a supporting role, Coreopsis are performers you’ll remember when the show’s over, for foliage as much as for stellar flowers.

<i>Coreopsis</i> ‘Créme Brulée’

If Créme Brulée is your dessert of choice, consider satisfying your sweet tooth in a less caloric but equally delightful way. Originally discovered in Lois Woodhull’s Long Island garden, this new Blooms of Bressingham hybrid is parented by Coreopsis grandiflora and Coreopsis ‘Moonbeam’.

Neat ferny mounds serve as a dark green, threadleaf foil for large, butter yellow, luminous flowers. Delicately notched at each petal tip, the perky, long blooming daisies not only top the foliage but line the robust stems. To savor an array of color and texture, clump forming ‘Créme Brulée’ can be grouped with Verbascum ‘Flush of White’ and Eryngium ‘Sapphire Blue’. (PPAF)

Blooms late June–September.

Size: 20" high x 2' 0" – 2-1/2' wide.

Hardy to zone 5.

<i>Coreopsis tripteris</i>

This lofty North American native yields a sea of dark-centered yellow daisies dancing atop strong, upright stems, which branch high up and impart an airy stature. Tall Tickseed is easy to grow and is most at home in a meadowlike setting, juxtaposed with the blue blades of Panicum ‘Cloud Nine’ and purple flowered Aster turbinellus.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 7' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

<i>Coreopsis tripteris</i> ‘Gold Standard’

A new compact selection discovered in Alabama by the Mt. Cuba Center, this lofty North American native yields a sea of solitary, dark-centered yellow daisies with 8 round-tipped rays atop strong erect stems, which branch high up and impart an airy stature. Anise-scented, trim green leaves, featuring 3 narrow lance-shaped segments, garb ‘Gold Standard’s disease-resistant cold-hardy bearing. Easily grown Tall Tickseed is most at home in a meadow-like setting, juxtaposed with the grayish green blades of Panicum ‘Rehbraun’ and purple-flowering Aster turbinellus.

Blooms July–September

Size: 4' 0" – 6' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 3.

A year-round delight, ‘Moonbeam’ emerges in spring as an almost mossy green mat; finely cut leaves evolve into fluffy foliage that supports billows of pale yellow-green star bursts. This unusual chartreuse complements almost any other color, though our favorite combination is Penstemon ‘Alice Hindley’ or Miscanthus ‘Rigoletto’. After its long show, the rust-tinted seed heads remain through fall. Utilized as a ground cover in the rock garden or a border—sturdy ‘Moonbeam’ does it all.

Blooms June–September

Size: 18" high x 20" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Coreopsis verticillata ‘Zagreb’ (P-0052)

Each $8.00

AVAILABLE SPRING 2021

If you’ve tried some of the new Coreopsis introductions, but long for a blast from the past, you may be pleased to rediscover this tough-guy Coreopsis, whose finely cut, dense architectural form looks attractive even before the long lasting blooms appear. Dissected slender green leaves plus sturdy upright branching stems bolster a cheerful profusion of golden yellow daisies. Versatile, dependable and drought resilient, ‘Zagreb’ makes a colorful highly textured addition to the foreground, especially when flanked by Sidalcea ‘Elsie Heugh’.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 15" wide.

Hardy to zone 5.

To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received.
