  • Planting Instructions

    Found naturally on bottomlands with ample moisture, the Plains Coreopsis is adapted to all by the driest soil types. It does best on well-drained soil in full sun, but it will tolerate light shade.

    If you live in an area with strong winters, you must plant your Plains Coreopsis seeds in the spring, but a fall planting is possible if winters are mild. This annual will bloom from mid-summer to mid-fall.

    Sow your Plain Coreopsis seeds directly outside on a firm soil bed. It will germinate best if a clean tilled site is firmed with a roller or finishing harrow. Broadcast or shallowly drill 1 to 2 pounds of seed per acre (1 to 2 grams per 100 square feet.) Plant growth and seed production is increased by fertilizer. Fertilizer should be applies according to soil test recommendations. If test results are not available, a rate of 3.5 to 5.5 ounces per 100 square feet (100 to 150 pounds per acre) of 13-13-13 should be applied in the spring before flowering occurs.

    The Plains Coreopsis only requires average watering. Water regularly, but be sure you do not over water.

    Bees, butterflies and birds are attracted to the Plains Coreopsis.
