6-12" tall x 12-18” wide. Li'l Bang™ ‘Starlight’ Coreopsis, also known as Tickseed, is an excellent choice for season-long blooms in the front of borders and small gardens. Part of the Li’l Bang series of coreopsis bred for their short, compact stature and large, sterile flowers that bloom from early summer through fall. Coreopsis is drought tolerant once established. This compact mounding coreopsis is perfect for containers, borders, cottage gardens, and rock gardens. Give plants plenty of sun and well-drained soil. Gently shear after the first flush of flowers to keep ‘Starlight’ blooming all season long. ‘Starlight’ is a reliable and well-behaved native selection that resists deer browsing.
