HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, planting the seed just below the surface of the soil; these Coreopsis Lanceolata seeds need light to germinate. For spring planting, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 30 days before direct sowing. Keep the soil evenly moist until germination, which should occur within 10-15 days. The treated Sand Coreopsis seeds can also be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring; plant the seeds on the surface of a flat, keeping the moisture consistent and the temperature around 65 degrees F. Transplant seedlings.

Growing: This plant adapts to nearly any soil, including rocky or shallow areas or seaside conditions. Water the seedlings occasionally until they become established; mature plants prefer dry soil and tolerate drought, heat, and humidity well. If given too much moisture or rich soil, the plants tend to flop and may need support. If the blooming decreases midseason, cut the plant back by half for new growth and blooms. Regular deadheading also helps prolong the season of blooming. If allowed to self-seed it will produce volunteer plants, though it does not become weedy. For the healthiest growth, divide plants in the spring or fall after several years of growth. This plant attracts butterflies and bees as well as resisting rabbits and deer.

Harvesting: For long lasting fresh flowers, cut the stems long and place them in water immediately.

Seed Saving: Several weeks after the flowers have faded, the seed heads will turn dry and dark brown. Since these Coreopsis Lanceolata seeds are a favorite food of songbirds and rodents, harvest them promptly. Cut the heads from the plant and spread them out to dry completely. Break them apart to remove the seeds, and separate the seeds from the chaff. Store Sand Coreopsis seeds in a cool, dry place.

Coreopsis

I bought seeds from Everwilde 2 years ago and the seed had a high germination rate and vigorous large flowers. I am buying from Everwilde again.

Great selection filters for native plants

I have been trying to grow native plants for the environmental benefits and to support insect and bird populations. You're website made it so easy to identify native flowers for my region. The growing tips are also much appreciated.

Voted Florida's favorite wildflower

It's true that the coreopsis (tickseed) plant loves Florida soil! It's easy to grow and provides a prairie landscaped look. You will really like to purchase this plant in bulk to help establish a nature setting or prairie-look to your lots. Tip: Make sure to stake plants that bloom heavily or top heavy since the plant will flop over if not staked or provided support. It does well to mix in a bucket of playground sand with other Florida loving wildflowers such as candytuff and black-eyed susans so that you extend the growing season.

One of my favorite

I have been gardening since I was 12. After the years, I experimented with seeds and what could grow with little effort in my region and this plant really takes to the sandy soil in Florida. I have had them return year and year again, so this is a good investment when it comes to landscaping mixed with Rudbeckia (Black Eyed Susans) which bloom later when the Coreopsis finish. They both return and extend the spring and summer garden season. One of my favorite plants to grow in Florida!

DESCRIPTION

This golden wildflower will bring sunshine wherever it grows. A popular choice of beginning gardeners because it is so easy to grow, and produces a really satisfying flower in a short time.
This plant's blazing brightness and heat-loving, drought tolerant growth has made it one of the most well known native wildflowers, as well as being a popular choice of beginning gardeners and master gardeners alike. The genus name Coreopsis, derived from the Greek "koris," refers to the resemblance of the seeds to bedbugs. The flowers in this family have become especially well loved by the citizens of the state of Florida, who appointed Coreopsis as their official state wildflower in 1991.
