2018 is the Year of the Coreopsis

Coreopsis means “always cheerful,” and these bright and pretty American natives live up to this designation in glorious fashion. Coreopsis, sometimes referred to as Tickseed, is a perennial flower typically seen in happy shades of yellow and gold, with some species also containing touches of red, bronze and burgundy. They provide an eye-catching floral show from spring to summer wherever they are planted. and they’re considered drought tolerant.

Give Coreopsis a sunny location with well-drained soil, and they will reward you with an abundance of colorful flowers on an easy-care drought tolerant plant. Coreopsis is a pollinator magnet attracting bees and butterflies to their blooms and birds to their seeds. They are normally resistant to deer and rabbits.

Given the beauty, resilience, and popularity of Coreopsis, it is entirely fitting that the National Garden Bureau has designated 2018 as the Year of the Coreopsis. You’ll want to add Coreopsis to your landscape, and we’ve got them!
