Easily grown in medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Plants tolerate humidity and some dry conditions, but generally are not as drought tolerant as most other species of Coreopsis. Prompt deadheading of spent flower stalks can be tedious for a large planting, but does tend to encourage additional bloom. Plants may be sheared in mid to late summer to promote a fall rebloom and to remove any sprawling or unkempt foliage. In optimum growing conditions, plants will spread in the garden over time by stolons to form an attractive ground cover, but spread is easy to check.
