COREOPSIS grandiflora (Tickseed) Zone 3 Blooms constantly to frost, remove fading blooms. Can become leggy and tippy if grown in crowded conditions, but are generally sturdy and upright to eighteen inches if it gets good sun from top to bottom of the clump
Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils with good drainage. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prompt deadheading of spent flower stalks encourages additional bloom and prevents any unwanted self-seeding. Freely self seeds and can become somewhat weedy. Also spreads by rhizomes. Plants are somewhat short-lived and self-seeding helps perpetuate a good planting in the garden. Plants may be cut back hard in summer if foliage sprawls or becomes unkempt. When grown in borders or other formal garden areas, division may be needed every 2-3 years to maintain robustness. May be grown as annuals.
