CARE
Care Thrives in average to fertile, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; allow to dry slightly between intervals. Once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize in early spring. Prune lightly in mid to late summer to encourage a new bloom flush. Hard prune after flowering.
HISTORY
Lore Coreopsis is a name translated from the Greek for 'bug-like' due to the resemblance of the seed to wood ticks. In addition to being deer resistant, several species of Coreopsis (including C. grandiflora) are rabbit resistant, although very young plants and new seedlings may need to be protected in heavily grazed areas.
