The Designer Threads™ Creamy Calico Coreopsis is a native plant with some seriously pretty flowers. The petals of the Coreopsis verticillata are such a soft, creamy yellow that they almost appear white. A deep maroon eye provides a stunning contrast. Each flower is unique, and gaps often appear between the petals. The negative space between the petals offers definition and texture. Enjoy these flowers throughout the summer. Thin, green foliage provides extra color and texture.

This lovely Coreopsis is native to North America, so once this plant settles in, it does not require much care. The showy flowers attract bees and butterflies. Add the Designer Threads™ Creamy Calico Coreopsis to a mixed bed or create a lovely mass planting. Trim stems to include the flowers in arrangements. Grow the Designer Threads™ Creamy Calico Coreopsis in zones 5 through 9.

Designer Threads™ Creamy Calico Coreopsis Care

Coreopsis plants need full sun to look their best. These plants are not picky about soil as long as it is moist, well drained, and acidic to neutral. The Designer Threads™ Creamy Calico Coreopsis has average water needs and should be watered regularly the first growing season. While these plants are mildew resistant, water the ground around the plant and not the foliage when possible. Fertilizer is only necessary when plants are grown in low-quality soil.

Deadhead the daisy-like flowers to keep the plant looking tidy and prevent self-seeding if you don’t want the plants to spread. Cut the plant back by half after flowering ends to encourage another flush of flowers.

Designer Threads™ Creamy Calico Coreopsis Spacing

The Designer Threads™ Creamy Calico Coreopsis stands 16 to 18 inches tall and 24 to 28 inches wide. Space plants 24 to 28 inches apart so air can circulate around the foliage.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

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. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

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.
