|Care||Grows easily in average, well-drained soil; thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils. Water regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Remove spent blooms to encourage prolific bloom and prevent unwanted self-seeding. Fertilize in early spring.|
|Lore||Vibrant tickseeds provide easy-care color that will invite butterflies and birds to the garden. While several species of Coreopsis are rabbit resistant, C. verticillata is more prone to grazing bunnies, especially when young.|
