Tickseed, Moonbeam Threadleaf Tickseed (Coreopsis verticillata Moonbeam)

by Mackey's Farm

This 1992 perennial plant of the year still packs a summer garden punch that few plants can equal! Pale yellow daisy flowers seem to float above delicate, needlelike foliage nearly all summer long and even into the fall once they start blooming in early July. Few perennials can match the reblooming power of 'Moonbeam' as loads of buds rise above spent flowers to keep adding color to the garden. 'Moonbeam' is drought tolerant and deer resistant and its ability to fill in around other sun loving perennials with its thin, non-shading foliage makes this easy to grow selection a perfect companion plant in the garden. For a powerful statement, group 'Moonbeam' in the middle of any sunny, well drained planting area and watch the summer fireworks!
