Foliage is full and light, while the upright stems don’t collapse. Jethro Tull is sought out as the go to yellow/orange coreopsis. It is well known for its coloration and hardiness that it stands out among other cultivars and pairs brilliantly with purples and yellows in the garden.

Coreopsis or tickseed is an excellent plant for any garden because it is easy to grow and also packs a big punch.

Small and unimpressive

Far smaller and less healthy than expected. Save your money and buy local - it will be twice the size, fuller and healthier.
