For a serious injection of color, look no further than the Big Bang™ Sun Splash Tickseed. With its frilly, two-tone, red and yellow flowers, it simply dazzles whether grown in drifts in a border or a container. Big Bang™ Sun Splash will bloom throughout the summer, attract pollinators, and being perennial, will even come back again next year. 

With a compact habit, this plant won’t become unruly; as a herbaceous plant, this tickseed is easy-to-manage and low maintenance. Originating from North America, Big Bang™ Sun Splash is a sun-loving plant that can cope with some shade; it is also deer resistant. With a long flowering season, this coreopsis makes a great choice as a cut flower.

Big Bang™ Sun Splash Tickseed Plant Care

Preferring full sun, this perennial loves a hot and sunny border. Best planted in free-draining, neutral soil, regular watering is required until it is established, after which it can be reduced. Fertilizing isn’t strictly necessary unless the soil is very poor. However, to give Big Bang a boost, an organic slow-release fertilizer can be sparingly applied in early summer. Don’t be tempted to overfeed it though, as over-fertilizing may inhibit flower production.

To keep this tickseed flowering for months on end, regular deadheading during the summer is required. For some winter protection, it is best to leave the foliage standing and to add a layer of mulch, before cutting it back to the base in spring. If grown in containers, move these plants to a sheltered location to overwinter.

Big Bang™ Sun Splash Tickseed Spacing

Growing to 1.5 feet tall and up to 2 feet wide, the Big Bang™ Sun Splash Tickseed does not need a huge amount of room and can provide great impact even if grown individually in a planter. However, if you are planting a mass of it for a big impact, plants can be spaced around 18 inches apart; just make sure you have access to deadhead them when needed.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
