Coreopsis, Hybrid Tickseed, Jethro Tull Tickseed

General Description

Jethro Tull tickseed is a wonderful hybrid that will provide golden yellow blooms all summer long. Drought tolerant and resilient, it has threadlike green foliage, and becomes covered with golden daisies with distinctly tubular, or fluted, petals. Deadheading will ensure a continuous bloom.

For best growth, plant 'Jethro Tull' in average, well drained soil and full to part sun. Its flowers are attractive to butterflies and will brighten any sunny mixed border or container. In the garden, plant them in groups for the best effect.
