Enjoy consistent, bold color during the summer with the Darling Clementine Tickseed. Orange-petaled flowers have feathered tips and are 3 inches in diameter. This plant makes a colorful statement and does well with minimal effort. Also known as Coreopsis LI'L BANG™ 'Darling Clementine', this perennial features thin, medium-green foliage near the base of the plant.
The Darling Clementine Tickseed is disease resistant, making it a good plant for inexperienced gardeners. Plant this beauty in beds, borders, or mass plantings. Cut the stems to feature the flowers in arrangements. This Coreopsis attracts pollinators but is deer resistant and can generally live in challenging conditions that many other plants cannot handle.
Darling Clementine Tickseed Care
Plant the Darling Clementine Tickseed in full to partial sun in average, well-drained soil. Established plants have medium water needs, and a layer of mulch will retain moisture and help the plants thrive. Feed the Darling Clementine Tickseed using a single dose of fertilizer each spring to help the plant push out new growth at the start of the growing season.
Tickseed is an herbaceous perennial, so while it will come back year after year, all of the growth dies back in the fall. Leave the basal foliage in place over the winter to protect the roots from cold weather; clear away dead growth in the spring when new leaves emerge. Divide the plant every few years if it outgrows its current home.
Darling Clementine Tickseed Spacing
The large flowers of the Darling Clementine Tickseed sit on top of thin stems. This plant will grow 8 to 10 inches tall and wide. Space plants 10 inches apart to create a dense planting.
