The Li'l Bang™ Starlight Tickseed or Coreopsis is a reliable plant that doesn’t need much attention, but this beauty provides a lot of color and visual interest during the summer and fall. Daisy-like flowers have white petals with dark purplish magenta accents that almost look like it was painted near the eye. The purple accents will be more prominent in areas with cooler temperatures. The petals surround a bright yellow center and have scalloped ends. 

This dwarf plant has a compact, mounded form and is ideal for beds, borders, small gardens, and containers. Plant Li'l Bang™ Starlight Tickseed near the front of a bed or mass planting so the flowers can be admired. Butterflies will visit the flowers, while deer generally leave the plant alone. Grow the Li'l Bang™ Starlight Tickseed as a perennial in USDA zones 5 through 9.

Li'l Bang™ Starlight Tickseed Care

Plant this tickseed in an area that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight. The soil should have medium moisture and allow drainage. Tickseed can live in poor-quality soil, but the soil should have an acidic to neutral pH. New plants need consistent water, but established plants are drought tolerant. Top-dress the soil with organic mulch in the spring or apply a balanced fertilizer at half the recommended strength on the label. Feeding the plant once in the spring supports the plant throughout the growing season.

This perennial is disease resistant, so it does not require much preventative care. Divide Li'l Bang™ Starlight Tickseed in the spring as needed.

Li'l Bang™ Starlight Tickseed Spacing

The Li'l Bang™ Starlight Tickseed will grow 6 to 10 inches tall and 10 to 15 inches wide. Space plants 8 to 12 inches apart when creating a mass planting.

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.
