The Plant store is now closed for orders.

  • I'm planning on one last round of sales toward the end of September of plants that I'll be potting up from a nursery bed I planted in the fall of 2022. I'll post the details and the time once I have the plants ready to go
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information here to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.
  • Please see the Plant Nursery for a photo of the different sizes/prices on offer and for information on the sizing of these seedlings and the details of the sale

* Coreopsis tripteris, Tall Tickseed

Coreopsis tripteris 

Tall Tickseed

  • Average to slightly dry or slightly wet soils
  • Full sun to light shade (will lean toward the sun)
  • 7’ to 9’ tall, 3’ to 4’ spread
  • Late Summer to Fall Blooming
  • Native to Ontario, Meadow, open woodland and high moisture (but not flooded) ecosystems

New to me this year, grown from seeds from the Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library and Prairie Moon Nursery 

A very tall, late summer blooming species, quite unlike Lance-leaved Coreopsis in size form. Reported to be inclined to spread, these might best be paired with other competitive or large species, like Monarda fistulosa, Joe-Pye-weed, Ironweed and Wingstem.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.
