Coreopsis tripteris Gold Standard
‘Gold Standard’ Tickseed is a wonderful addition to any garden. This is a selection from a wild population in Alabama discovered by botanists from the Mt. Cuba Center. ‘Gold Standard’ has the genes of the wild but the temperament for the garden- it spreads slowly (about 2 feet in 3 years) and flowers on shorter secondary growth, so the flower display lasts longer and is not limited tot he top of the plant. A nice sunny yellow with dark brown cone, this selection blooms for an average 9 weeks and has an overall smaller, sturdier habit.
