Description

Coreopsis (Tickseed)  kor-ee-OP-sis

Native to North America, coreopsis plants grow in upright clumps and feature masses of bright, showy, daisy-like flowers throughout the summer. The foliage of the species varies, with some varieties boasting large green leaves and others sporting narrower greenery. One of the plant’s common names, tickseed, is a nod to its round seeds, which resemble ticks. Birds and other wildlife love to snack on the seeds during the fall and winter, while bees and butterflies are drawn to the colorful blooms.
