From late spring to late summer, you can count on the welcoming yellow blooms of tickseed. Coreopsis are easily grown and make good cut flowers. These perennial plants prefer well-drained soil in full sun. Keep the plants deadheaded for best flowering. Make sure to leave a few seed heads at the end of the season so the plant will reseed itself.
