The Native Plant Store can Now be Found Here

  • This page will remain accessible as a library page until I have all the species moved to the new page and all the quirks worked out in the new software so it can function as a searchable library.
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information in this existing library to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

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.
