Coreopsis Lanceolata Seeds - Fragrant & Pollinator Friendly

Quantity: 50 Seeds


Coreopsis is a perennial member of the daisy family, Asteraceae. It's a hardy perennial down to zone 4. The plants thrive in many soil types, and only need a moderate amount of moisture in the soil. The flowers have a sweet and rich aroma that attracts a wide range of pollinators. Planting Coreopsis anywhere near the garden will increase pollination of crops and other plants in the area due to the increase of pollinators they attract, in fact, the plants are often used to restore pollinators to an urban setting because their flowers are foraged by so so many different beneficial insects. Also, because of their wonderful scent, the blooms make an excellent addition to just about any cut flower arrangement. 


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    Coreopsis seeds may be started in pots in the spring, or directly sown into the ground. If sown indoors, it sometimes helps to cold stratify the seeds in the refrigerator for a couple weeks before planting them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher. Once transplanted and established, These plants will live for many years assuming you live in zone 4 or warmer. The plants don’t require very much attention once established other than yearly mulching, a bi-weekly watering, and a clipping back to the ground in the winter. Coreopsis is resistant to pests and drought.
