General Description

Gold Nugget tickseed is an exceptional hybrid perennial that becomes a vibrant golden mound of color in the landscape. In summer, handsomely mounded plants with deeply divided bright green foliage yield hundreds of eight-petaled, yellow and dark rusty orange-red flowers with golden central discs. Butterflies and bees with dance around the flowers every chance they get.

Like most Coreopsis, these do best in sites with full to part sun and well drained, average soil that is not excessively acidic. Plants will continue blooming into fall if spent flowers are promptly removed. This butterfly magnet looks stupendous when massed with other sun-loving perennials and ornamental grasses, and is always lovely in meadows.
