If you are looking for a drought-tolerant, long-blooming, pollinator-friendly perennial, then Coreopsis is a perfect pick!
This North American native, commonly called Tickseed, comes in a range of flower colors, including yellow, gold, pink, red, orange, white and bicolor. All prefer full to part sun and are beloved by butterflies and birds, but snubbed by deer.
Estabrook’s currently offers over 20 different varieties (many hardy to Zone 3), but inventory changes daily as customers take advantage of these no-fuss, workhorse perennials. Many bloom nonstop without any deadheading, especially threadleaf varieties.
Stop by and check out these remarkable natives! If you’re only familiar with Coreopsis ‘Moonbeam’, one of the most commonly sold tickseed, then you are in for a big, COLORFUL surprise!
