Product Details

Impressive blossoms (nearly 3″ across) with golden petals and large bronze eye zones hover above bushy clumps of mildew-resistant foliage. These pollinator-friendly plants have a neat mounding habit, perfect for the front of a border. 'Baluptgonz' PP 28,882

A genus of Daisy-like plants, Coreopsis is excellent for the border. Most species are native to the southeastern United States and Mexico. They are not the least fussy about soil but require full sun. Cut stems back after the first flush of flowers fade to promote a repeat bloom.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

Love Love Love this Uptick Coreopsis!

I've never tried Coreopsis before and believe I've been blessed with the BEST my first try. Uptick is hardy and just finished its 3rd season in my garden near Green Bay. It just blooms and blooms and blooms. It was still blooming after the first two frosts when everything else was done. I do give it a 'haircut' mid summer and it just seems to love that and start going to town blooming again. I don't 'baby' it, and it thrives anyway in a sandy loam soil and tolerates not being regularly watered. So I'm sold on Coreopsis UpTick. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a long bloom season and very bright and cheerful blooms.

I bought and planted this in spring (2019) so haven't overwintered yet. However, this plant has exceeded my expectations by a long shot. It is a prolific bloomer and I've only deadheaded it once, don't have the time. Tomorrow is Oct 1st and it is still going very very strong, even with all the rain we've been getting here and cloudy days. The foliage is not thread-leafed but resembles Gaillardia foliage, it is very nice. I have a 'Red Satin' thread leafed Coriopsis which is not as pretty as Uptick is for foliage and flowers. LOVE this Coriopsis!

Prolific bloomer but a little work

I planted two of these and one of them survived the winter. I think it has come back now for the third year. I usually deadhead the spent blooms in a timely fashion but this year I didn't deadhead for the first time until the middle of June. I counted the number of spent blooms on the one plant that I had to remove in June. It was 539. And now it's covered in buds again. it seems like it blooms until frost. It's a beautiful plant but you do need to deadhead it to keep it blooming. Every few days you could snip off 25 to 50 spent blooms but as I said, I waited until mid-June to do my first deadheading this time which is not advisable. Also, I've had to stake it a bit. If I could, I'd give it 4.5 stars.

Latin Name Pronunciation: ko-ree-op'sis   

Merry daisies in shades of yellow and pink have made Coreopsis mainstays of the summer border. Newer colors include white with burgundy and salmon. Masses of flowers are produced for long periods, especially if plants are consistently deadheaded. These drought-tolerant perennials offer up cheerful blooms excellent for cutting and are of easy culture. There are varieties suitable for the front, middle, and back of the border, and as native Americans, they are right at home in wildflower gardens and meadows.

Light/Watering: Full sun brings out the best in Coreopsis, especially in well-drained soils. Water during drought, but Coreopsis is quite drought-tolerant once established.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Coreopsis is not fussy about soil, and will bloom exuberantly under a variety of conditions. Well-drained soils are best, especially in winter. Coreopsis rosea prefers an evenly moist soil (in which it may run a bit wild), although it is not a requirement. Fertilize lightly once in spring with a balanced granular formula; too much fertilizer will result in spindly growth.

Pests/Diseases: Healthy, vigorous plants under good culture are rarely bothered by insects; wash off light infestations of aphids with a forceful water spray. Diseases are also rare, especially in well-drained soils. If soils are too wet, the crowns may rot.

Companions: Butterfly delphinium (Delphinium grandiflorum) or other short Delphiniums are natural complements to yellow Coreopsis. Alliums, Daylilies, and Coneflowers are also lovely in combination with these bright daisies.

Reflowering: Daily deadheading, while onerous, will reward the gardener with almost continuous bloom. To achieve an attractive plant and possible rebloom in autumn, shear plants back by a few inches as flowering slows down in late July.

Dividing/Transplanting: Divide plants every three years in spring or early fall to maintain vigor. Please note that Coreopsis 'Moonbeam' will arrive as a tangle of roots and stems that defies attempts to distinguish top from bottom. Simply dig a wide, shallow hole and set the spidery thing inside horizontally, covering with an inch of soil. Gravity will prevail, and the plant will send roots down and shoots up.

End-of-Season Care: Do not prune back all the way for the winter, as stems left standing will protect the crowns. 'Moonbeam' will benefit from a mulch of salt hay or evergreen boughs.

Calendar of Care

Early Spring: Apply a light application of granular 10-10-10 fertilizer or side-dress with compost and organic amendments when new growth appears. Water newly planted Coreopsis regularly if spring rains are sporadic. Divide or transplant now if desired.

Summer: Deadhead daily for prolonged bloom. Shear plants back by ¼ to ½ to encourage more attractive form and possible reblooming in autumn.

Fall: Plants may be divided or transplanted now if needed. Do not prune all the way back—leave stems at 6–8″ to protect crowns through winter. Mulch 'Moonbeam' with salt hay or evergreen boughs.
