Tickseed

Coreopsis grandiflora 'Early Sunrise'

Mounds of foliage support semi-double, deep golden flowers on this early bloomer.

Also known as Tickseed. Plants form a low mound of leathery green leaves, bearing many upright stems of large golden-yellow semi-double daisy flowers for many weeks, starting in early summer. Removing faded flowers regularly will encourage blooming to continue into the fall. This is a medium-sized selection that will not get overly tall or floppy. Plants are easily divided in early spring, and this should be done every 2 to 3 years. Tolerant of hot, humid summer climates. Excellent for borders, as well as in containers. Attractive to butterflies. Species is native to the southern USA.
