Coreopsis – Plains Tall


Plains Coreopsis is found as a native in many US states.  Plains Coreopsis should be started outdoors but can be planted indoors and transplanted if it is done when it is still very small.  The tall variety can grow anywhere between 32 and 48 inches tall.  The slim seeds will germinate in either fall or early spring.  Plains Coreopsis grows rapidly when planted in well-drained soils.  A fall planting is possible when a mild winter follows. Any area that weathers strong winters must spring plant.  This flower won’t tolerate heat and humidity and needs only average watering.  Deadheading this flower will help to promote more full blooms.  Plains Coreopsis can grow in many different variants of soil quality and content.
