Quick Overview:

Coreopsis tripteris, commonly called tall coreopsis or tall tickseed, is a tall, slender native wildflower which typically grows 4-8′ tall and typically occurs in prairies, dry open woods and wood margins, and along roadsides and railroad tracks. Features solitary, yellow, daisy-like flowers (1-2″ diameter) with eight yellow rays (rounded and untoothed at the tips) and flat brown center disks. Flowers bloom atop slender, erect stems from mid to late summer into fall.

Description

Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils with good drainage. Plants grown in dry soils tend to be shorter, open and somewhat spindly. Plants grown in medium moisture soils with consistent moisture tend to be taller and fuller. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prompt deadheading of spent flowers may encourage additional bloom and prevents any unwanted self-seeding. Freely self-seeds, and in optimum growing conditions will naturalize to form large colonies. If grown in borders, division may be needed every 2-3 years to maintain robustness.
