Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Remove spent blooms to encourage prolific bloom and prevent unwanted self-seeding. Fertilize in early spring.
HISTORY
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.
