#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant perennial Coreopsis in full sun or afternoon shade, in about any kind of well-drained soil. Tolerant of clay to sandy conditions, provide regular water throughout the first year in the ground and during extreme drought conditions, but once established Coreopsis can be quite hardy and xeric!

Also known as Tickseed, deadheading will keep the blooms pumping out through fall unless you want them to reseed, which they will happily do for you! Clean mounds in the early spring before new growth emerges. You can divide your plants every few years to maintain their vigor and spread their super color further in your landscape!
