Coreopsis verticillata, or the Whorled Tickseed, is a perennial featuring delicate, needle-like, green foliage with pale, yellow flowers. Flowers continue to bloom throughout the entire summer and grows 18-24 inches tall. Great for pollinators and insects. It is tolerant of deers, drought, heat, humidity, and can control erosion.



Whorled Tickseed can adapt to many soil conditions like sandy, poor, and rocky soils. Plant in dry or average well-drained soils in partial shade to full sun. Avoid heavy clay soils to prevent crown rot. The plant spreads by rhizomes and seeds, and can be propagated by division during the spring or fall. Remove dead blossoms to maintain abundant and healthy flowers.
