  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This lovely, exceptionally showy, long-flowering, pale yellow tickseed is perfect for extending the season of a summer border in sun or partial shade. As long as it's deadheaded regularly, it produces a succession of slender-stemmed, single, daisy-like flowers with orange-yellow centres from June to September. The flowers are also attractive to bees and butterflies.

  • Garden care: Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and water well during hot, dry spells. Cut the faded flower-stems back down to ground level in autumn and compost.

Comes back year after year

        Lovely little flower that keeps going well into Autumn if you deadhead it (can take a while!). Is also the only Coreopsis that for me comes back every year - have tried others but no luck. Lovely yellow follows that positively glow!

        • Q:

          Advice re numbers please!

          Hello I have an L shaped area of about 2 square metres to fill and would like colour. The area is sunny and well drained. The plants I am thinking of are Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam', Hemerocallis 'Stella De Oro' and Achillea 'Terracotta'. I have often read that when planting you should plant in groups of 3 but also see that some of these plants should spread to 45 cm. Given the space I have to fill, should I choose 3 of each of these to ensure I have a good show of colour, or start off with one each in the knowledge they will eventually spread? All advice very much appreciated. Bev

            Hello There, It really depends on how patient you are! I would plant 3 of each as this will ensure a reasonably full display quite quickly and it will also make sure there are no gaps when they all grow together.
