Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming and maintain a tidy appearance. Cut back the plant in late fall to prepare for winter.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to excessive foliage at the expense of blooms.

Winter Protection: In colder regions, mulch around the base of the plant to insulate the roots and protect against frost heave during winter.


Plant in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. Dig a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root ball. Place the plant in the hole, backfill with soil, and water thoroughly. Space plants 12-14 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation and growth.

Water regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, it is moderately drought-tolerant. Coreopsis UpTick™ prefers full sun, requiring at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and flowering.

Frequently Asked Questions

Coreopsis UpTick typically grows to a height of about 12 to 18 inches and spreads approximately 12 to 18 inches wide. This compact size makes it ideal for garden borders, flower beds, and containers. Its dense, mounding habit and vibrant, daisy-like flowers create a striking visual impact in any garden setting. With proper care, including full sun, well-drained soil, and regular watering, Coreopsis UpTick will reach its full size and produce an abundance of colorful blooms throughout the growing season.

Coreopsis UpTick is known for its relatively fast growth rate. When planted in ideal conditions with full sun, well-drained soil, and regular watering, it can establish itself quickly. In the first growing season, you can expect significant growth, and the plant will typically reach its mature size of about 12 to 18 inches in height and spread within the first year. By the second growing season, Coreopsis UpTick will be fully established and produce abundant blooms from late spring through early fall. Regular care, including deadheading spent flowers, will encourage even more vigorous growth and prolonged blooming.

The best place to plant Coreopsis UpTick is in a location that meets the following criteria:

Full Sun: Choose a spot that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. Full sun promotes robust growth and abundant flowering.

Well-Drained Soil: Ensure the soil is well-drained and enriched with organic matter. Coreopsis UpTick prefers fertile, well-draining soil but can tolerate poorer soils.

Good Air Circulation: Plant in an area with good air circulation to help prevent fungal diseases. Avoid crowded spaces where airflow is restricted.

Garden Borders and Beds: Coreopsis UpTick is ideal for garden borders, flower beds, and as part of a mixed perennial garden. It also works well in containers and as an edging plant.

Moderate Protection: In extremely hot climates, a location that provides some afternoon shade can help protect the plant from excessive heat stress.

By selecting a planting location that offers these conditions, you can ensure that your Coreopsis UpTick will thrive, producing vibrant blooms and maintaining its health throughout the growing season.

When planting Coreopsis UpTick, space the plants about 12 to 18 inches apart. This spacing allows each plant enough room to grow and spread without competing for nutrients and water. Proper spacing also ensures good air circulation around the plants, which helps prevent diseases such as powdery mildew. By providing adequate space between the plants, you create a healthier and more visually appealing garden, with each Coreopsis UpTick showcasing its vibrant blooms to the fullest.

To care for Coreopsis UpTick and ensure it thrives, follow these guidelines:

Planting Location: Choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Coreopsis UpTick prefers full sun, which means at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.

Soil: Plant in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. While Coreopsis UpTick is tolerant of poor soils, it performs best in fertile, well-draining conditions.

Watering: Water regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, water the plant once a week during dry periods, providing about 1 inch of water each time. Ensure the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged.

Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

Fertilizing: Feed the plant with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring. Avoid over-fertilizing, as excessive nutrients can lead to lush foliage at the expense of blooms.

Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming. In the fall, after the first frost, cut back the stems to about 2-3 inches above the soil level to prepare the plant for winter.

Pest and Disease Control: Monitor for common pests like aphids and spider mites, and treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases like powdery mildew.

Winter Care: After cutting back the plant in the fall, apply a layer of mulch to protect the roots during winter. In the spring, remove the mulch and any dead foliage to promote new growth.

By following these care guidelines, your Coreopsis UpTick will remain healthy, producing vibrant blooms throughout the growing season.

Coreopsis UpTick should be watered regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Here's a general guideline for watering:

Establishment Period: Water newly planted Coreopsis UpTick regularly during the first growing season, ensuring the soil remains evenly moist. This helps the plant establish a strong root system.

Established Plants: Once established, Coreopsis UpTick is relatively drought-tolerant. Water the plant once a week during dry periods, providing about 1 inch of water each time. Adjust the frequency based on rainfall and soil moisture levels.

Hot Weather: During hot, dry spells, you may need to water more frequently to prevent the soil from drying out completely.

Always water at the base of the plant to avoid wetting the foliage, which can help prevent fungal diseases. Monitor the soil moisture and adjust your watering schedule as needed to keep your Coreopsis UpTick healthy and thriving.

To winterize Coreopsis UpTick, follow these steps:

Cut Back Stems: After the first frost, cut back the stems to about 2-3 inches above the soil level. This helps prevent disease and pest problems over the winter.

Remove Debris: Clear away any fallen leaves and plant debris around the base of the plant. This reduces the chances of fungal diseases and pests.

Apply Mulch: Add a layer of mulch around the base of the plant, about 2-3 inches thick. Use materials like straw, pine needles, or shredded bark. Mulching helps insulate the roots from extreme temperature fluctuations and retains soil moisture.

Watering: Ensure the soil is adequately moist before the ground freezes. This helps the plant survive through winter drought conditions.

By following these steps, you can protect your Coreopsis UpTick during the winter months, ensuring it remains healthy and ready to thrive in the spring.
