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.
A new compact selection discovered in Alabama by the Mt. Cuba Center, this lofty North American native yields a sea of solitary, dark-centered yellow daisies with 8 round-tipped rays atop strong erect stems, which branch high up and impart an airy stature. Anise-scented, trim green leaves, featuring 3 narrow lance-shaped segments, garb ‘Gold Standard’s disease-resistant cold-hardy visage. Easily grown Tall Tickseed is most at home in a meadow-like setting, juxtaposed with the blue blades of Panicum ‘Heiliger Hain’ and purple flowering Aster turbinellus.
