Coreopsis Plants

Coreopsis Plants are considered by many gardeners to be one of the best native wildflowers for use in the garden. Butterflies love them while deer avoid them.


Coreopsis, pronounced ko-ree-OP-sis, also commonly called Tickseed, produces daisy-like flowers all summer and into the fall. They are known for their long blooming season, especially if you take the time to deadhead, which encourages even more prolific blooming. The foliage of most Coreopsis is green, and fern-like. The drought-tolerant nature of the Tickseed makes it a great plant for container gardens, or near the road or mailbox where it won't get watered every day. Coreopsis plants look their best when planted in groups of 4 to 5 plants and should be divided every 4 years or so to keep the bed fresh and healthy looking.

Garnet Coreopsis Plant

Price $5.96

Our 'Garnet' Coreopsis Plant is one of the Jewel Series of coreopsis from Terra Nova Nurseries, a sibling to citrine, though they hardly resemble each other. Garnet’s petals appear to be shorter, as the deeply colored halo surrounding the eye can actually look like a larger-than-average eye, giving the appearance of shorter and fatter pink petals surrounding it. This optical illusion is what makes Garnet such a joy to grow, as it also adds incredible architectural interest, adding depth where it actually doesn’t exist. Yep, it’s a jewel all right!
