Coreopsis tripteris (Asteraceae)
(ko-ree-OP-sis TRIP-ter-is)
Tall Tickseed

Kim saw this plant covered with butterflies in the display gardens of Dale Hendricks' North Creek Nursery, and we have been growing and loving it ever since. Clouds of yellow daisies on sturdy 7' stems blend effortlessly with ornamental grasses. Carefree and long-lived, Tall Tickseed self-sows if the heads are allowed to mature, and these seeds provide valuable winter food for goldfinches. A uniquely tall and stately Coreopsis.
