Plant Features

Cruizin' Route 66 Coreopsis Plants are colorful beauties that change their wardrobe from spring to fall. The yellow, deeply veined flowers have a vivid red center that bleeds outwards as the seasons progress, changing from being predominantly yellow at first bloom to being almost completely red as fall approaches. You'll love it! Tickseed are easy to grow perennials that tolerate a range of soils, even dry soil in hot sundrenched areas. Once established they are drought tolerant. Butterflies and bees enjoy the nectar while wild birds will eat the seed heads when they are done flowering. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid this plant.

Coreopsis Companion Plants: Aster, Echinacea, Grasses, Penstemon, Salvia

Cruizin Route 66 Coreopsis Plant Care Instructions: Only water if the plant starts looking droopy. The spent flowers should be left on the plant for the Goldfinch and other songbirds. Cut it back to the ground in late winter or early spring before the new growth starts. Spring is a good time to apply fertilizer for the year.

Happy with purchase!

Could not be more pleased with my purchase! Arrived safe and sound! Planted during hot, dry spell here in the Midwest, and is thriving and growing like crazy! Thank you for your great products!

First Time Buyer

I bought a total of 6 various Coreopsis as I couldn't find varieties locally. Was a bit skeptical to order them in early July as my Coreopsis that I have are in full bloom-mode. All 6 plants arrived very well packaged, all healthy and one in bloom! I am absolutely impressed by GrowJoy's customer service and plants they grow and definitely plan to place more orders! I have formerly purchased from approximately 5 other companies but will honestly be buying my future plants from GrowJoy! Thank you so much for such incredible, healthy plants!
