    Coreopsis verticillata Zagreb - tickseed


    Coreopsis verticillata Zagreb is a hardy, long-blooming perennial plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family. This cultivar is commonly known as threadleaf coreopsis or whorled coreopsis, and is native to North America. It is a compact, clump-forming plant that grows up to 18 inches (45 cm) in height and spreads about 24 inches (60 cm) wide.

    The plant has delicate, fern-like foliage that is green in color and forms a neat mound. In the summer, it produces profuse, bright yellow, daisy-like flowers that are about 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) in diameter. The flowers have a contrasting dark center that adds to their beauty. The blooms appear on wiry, upright stems above the foliage, and they last for several weeks. Deadheading the spent flowers encourages the plant to produce more blooms.

    Zagreb coreopsis is a hardy plant that can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, including poor soil, and prefers full sun to partial shade. It is drought-tolerant once established, making it an excellent choice for rock gardens, border fronts, and mass plantings. It is also a great addition to pollinator gardens, as the flowers attract bees and butterflies.

    Overall, Coreopsis verticillata Zagreb is a low-maintenance, reliable plant that provides a long-lasting burst of sunshine in the garden with its bright yellow flowers.
