Tall Coreopsis Growing and Maintenance Tips

Can be grown in many conditions, but thrives in a moist, well-drained soil, in full sun. In good conditions, this coreopsis can be fairly aggressive, so it is best suited for naturalizing. Can handle drought and hot sites, but will be less likely to reach full height and width. Coreopsis tripteris seeds freely, so deadheading is recommended if naturalizing is not desired.
