How To Grow

Coreopsis seeds are best started indoors: sow seeds into a sterile starter mix in seed trays and then press into soil. Do not cover, as light is required for germination. Keep soil moist and at a temperature of at least 65F degrees. Under proper conditions, the seeds will germinate in 14-28 days. Once all danger of frost has passed, the established seedlings can be transplanted into the garden or pots. Grow in an area of partial shade and moist soil. Make sure to keep soil moist, as this variety of coreopsis is not particularly drought-tolerant.
