Plant Features

Sylvester Coreopsis is our brightest flower yet! These flowers are known to be pet friendly, and grow in any soil type, even sand or stones. The flower petals have an odd funnel like shape, which makes this coreopsis so unique! Deadheading is recommended to keep a neat appearance, but is not necessary, and they are sure to be a garden winner for years to come! Tickseeds 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 seed heads when they are done flowering. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid this plant.

Companion Planting: Aster, Echinacea, Grasses, Penstemon, Salvia
