Coreopsis tripteris Tall Tickseed
Coreopsis is a tall, slender wildflower native to the Midwest & Eastern
US. Tall Coreopsis typically grows 4 to 8 feet tall and is often found in prairies, dry open woods, wood margins, and along roadsides and railroad tracks.
Tall Coreopsis plants have several solitary, yellow, daisy-like flowers (1-2" diameter) with eight yellow rays (rounded and untoothed at the tips) and flat brown center disks. Flowers bloom atop slender, erect stems from mid to late summer into fall.
Stalked, anise-scented stem leaves are tripartite (divided into three narrow lance-shaped segments). Plants in the genus Coreopsis are sometimes commonly called tickseed in reference to the resemblance of the seeds to ticks.
Tall Coreopsis does not have and serious insect or disease problems but can be an invasive self-seeder if spent blooms are not promptly deadheaded. Tall Coreopsis may sprawl if grown in moist and/or fertile soils. Crown rot may occur if grown in moist, poorly drained soils. Taller plants may need some support, particularly if exposed to high winds. Tall Coreopsis is best grown in average to dry soils where it stands upright through the summer and fall. Tall Coreopsis is an attractive wildflower for the back border of flowerbeds. This wildflower will naturalize in native wildflower gardens, meadows or prairies and is a good plant for areas with poor, dry soils.
Coreopsis Tripteris thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils with good
drainage and is easily grown in average well-drained soil with dry to medium
moisture in full sun. Tall Coreopsis plants grown in dry soils tend to be shorter, open and somewhat spindly. Plants grown in medium moisture soils with consistent moisture tend to be taller and fuller.
Tall Coreopsis is tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prompt deadheading of spent flowers may encourage additional bloom and prevents any unwanted self-seeding.
Tall Tickseed Coreopsis freely self-seeds, and in optimum growing conditions will naturalize to form large colonies. If grown in borders, division may be needed every 2-3 years to maintain robustness.
