Plant Features

Jethro Tull Coreopsis Plants produce unique fluted, golden yellow flowers that bloom profusely in early and midsummer. Plants can be sheared back for a fall reblooming period. 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 enjoy the nectar while wild birds will eat the seadheads when they are done flowering. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid this plant.

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

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.

Jethro Tull Coreopsis Plant (Tickseed)

This is the second year I ordered these Coreopsis. The 6 I planted last year, came back quadrupled in size this year and they are beautiful. So now I'm happy to receive 6 more for another new garden. And these new fluted flowers are already blooming!

Just Great Jethro Tull

These are the largest and healthiest plants I've ever received from any other company over the years! The packaging you sent them in protected them nicely, and I had to call right away and say Thank You! We add more flower gardens ever year, and these Jethro Tull's will be so pretty with their fluted flower petals. We will be ordering from you only from now on, and look forward to the specials you send online.

A very satisfied first time customer.

I received this coreopsis plant and it was in full bloom just beautiful and the perfect size for planting. The packaging was excellent. Shipping was fast. Who knew you could order plants in the middle of the summer most companies have a cut off date and you have to wait until the next year. I love my plants they are doing great! I'm very pleased with this company. I will definitely order from them again.
