Availability: In Stock
Coreopsis flowers gently sway in the lightest breeze, appearing to almost float above the delicate foliage. Wildflowers, like this heirloom, are easy to grow and don't need special care, other than water, although moderately drought and heat tolerant, too. Butterflies and bees delight in the nectar, and songbirds seek out the seeds in fall and winter. Coreopsis is also known as tickseed. Often reseeds.

Cheerful, Easy, Prolific!

5 out of 5 stars Apr 29, 2019
I planted ONE packet of these in my irrigated Phoenix flower garden and let the small bunch of flowers set seed. I then "whacked" the dried bunch of flowers with a stick over other irrigated parts of my garden. This year, I have an EXPLOSION of lovely coreposis that even is thriving in the un-irrigated areas on natural rainfall! Natural magnet for butterflies and makes the bees happy too. Lovely, prolific, easy and colorful!

I planted these seeds in a no-irrigation public garden space this spring and they outperformed the dozen or so other annual seeds I planted by a long shot. They grew about 3 feet tall and are making a profusion of flowers with only the rain for water. I will definitely use these elsewhere since they are so cheerful and low maintenance. Thank you so much for carrying these wonderful seeds.
