Coreopsis (Tickseed)

Including Coreopsis verticillata ‘Moonbeam’, and Coreopsis verticillata ‘Zagreb’

Coreopsis

Tickseed

The Coreopsis we offer are perennials. They share some characteristics with their annual cousins: they are dependable, easy to work with, and make a quick impact. Though they often play a supporting role, Coreopsis are performers you’ll remember when the show’s over, for foliage as much as for stellar flowers.


Coreopsis ‘Créme Brulée’  full sun
Coreopsis  Créme Brulée

If Créme Brulée is your dessert of choice, consider satisfying your sweet tooth in a less caloric but equally delightful way. Originally discovered in Lois Woodhull’s Long Island garden, this new Blooms of Bressingham hybrid is parented by Coreopsis grandiflora and Coreopsis ‘Moonbeam’.

Neat ferny mounds serve as a dark green, threadleaf foil for large, butter yellow, luminous flowers. Delicately notched at each petal tip, the perky, long blooming daisies not only top the foliage but line the robust stems. To savor an array of color and texture, clump forming ‘Créme Brulée’ can be grouped with Verbascum ‘Flush of White’ and Eryngium ‘Sapphire Blue’. (PPAF)

Blooms late June–September.

Size: 20" high x 2' 0"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Tall Tickseed
Coreopsis tripteris

This lofty North American native yields a sea of dark-centered yellow daisies dancing atop strong, upright stems, which branch high up and impart an airy stature. Tall Tickseed is easy to grow and is most at home in a meadowlike setting, juxtaposed with the blue blades of Panicum ‘Cloud Nine’ and purple flowered Aster turbinellus.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 7' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Coreopsis verticillata ‘Moonbeam’  full sun

A year-round delight, ‘Moonbeam’ emerges in spring as an almost mossy mat; finely cut leaves evolve into fluffy foliage that supports billows of pale yellow-green star bursts. This unusual chartreuse complements almost any other color, though our favorite combination is Penstemon ‘Alice Hindley’ or Miscanthus sinensis ‘Rigoletto’. After its long show, the rust-tinted seed heads remain through fall. Use as a ground cover in the rock garden or border—sturdy ‘Moonbeam’ does it all.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 18" high x 20" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Coreopsis verticillata ‘Zagreb’  full sun  drought tolerant
Threadleaf Coreopsis

If you’ve tried some of the new Coreopsis introductions, but long for a blast from the past, you may be pleased to rediscover this tough-guy Coreopsis, whose finely cut, dense architectural form looks attractive even before the long lasting blooms appear. Dissected slender green leaves plus sturdy upright branching stems bolster a cheerful profusion of golden yellow daisies. Versatile, dependable and drought resilient, ‘Zagreb’ makes a colorful highly textured addition to the foreground, especially when flanked by Sidalcea ‘Elsie Heugh’.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
