Coreopsis (Tickseed)
at Digging Dog

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.

Coreopsis tripteris  full sun
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.

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter.

The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

Customer Comment:

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
