Coreopsis UPTICK™ Yellow and Red (Tickseed) is a compact herbaceous perennial forming a tidy and bushy mound of narrow, mid-green foliage. Blooming continuously from early summer into fall, it produces masses of sunny yellow flowers with dark red centers.

It can even be enjoyed indoors as this Coreopsis makes excellent cut flowers! The UPTICK™ series has won several industry awards.

  • Grows up to 12-14 in. tall and wide (30-35 cm).
  • Thrives in full sun but tolerates partial shade (specifically in hot summer areas) and enjoys medium moisture, well-drained soils.
  • Very versatile, it is a welcomed addition to beds and borders, cottage or coastal gardens, and does great in containers. Spectacular in mass plantings.
  • Unfussy and relatively low maintenance, this Coreopsis is a favorite of bees and butterflies but is deer resistant.
  • Virtually disease free. Keep an eye out for slugs and snails.
  • Cut old stems back to their bases as they die back at the end of the year.
  • Propagate from basal cuttings.

Most of them are low maintenance, drought tolerant, and enjoy long blooming seasons. Workhorse perennials in the sunny borders, they make excellent cut flowers.
