Coreopsis is a natural addition to any cottage, prairie, or meadow garden, but it can be a bit of a nuisance due to its high rate of self-seeding. Li’l Bang™ Riding Hood Tickseed solves that problem with nonstop blooming of sterile flowers. This tickseed produces nectar to entice beneficial pollinators, hummingbirds, and butterflies but does not produce pollen and seed. The shorter size of the plant also makes for a more dense upright shape that is less prone to falling flat. The deep reddish-copper flowers add to this perennial’s list of pros.

Li’l Bang™ Riding Hood has finely cut foliage, complementing large-leaved perennials and shrubs perfectly. Try planting it with Maiden Grass, Shasta Daisies, and Riding Hood Tickseed for a dazzling early summer combination. Deer are not often attracted to the foliage or flowers, although slugs and snails may be a problem for newly emerging shoots in the spring. The flowers are wonderful for indoor arrangements and are often dried for wreaths and winter decorating. 

Li’l Bang™ Riding Hood Tickseed Care

Plant Tickseed in a spot with full sun or at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. Free-draining, average-texture soil is a must. Fertilize with an all-purpose, balanced, granular fertilizer once in the early spring. Lightly scratch it into the soil for continued feeding throughout the growing season. This perennial is cold and heat tolerant and can be grown in USDA zones 3-8 with little winter protection. 

Container-grown coreopsis will require more watering and regular fertilizing through the growing season. Water when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry. Fertilize with liquid seaweed or fish emulsion once a month from April to August. Deadhead pot-grown plants as the flowers fade. Deadheading is not necessary for large clumps in the garden. Cut back any spent foliage in early spring just as the plant emerges from dormancy and new green shoots appear. 

Li’l Bang™ Riding Hood Tickseed Spacing

The compact size of the Li’l Bang™ series makes it great for growing in containers as the ‘filler’ or for edging a smaller garden. The mature height and spread are a restrained 8-12 inches. Space the plants 10 inches on center when growing in the garden. A container with at least an 8-inch diameter is required for pot growing.

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.
