Our native Tickseed has come a long, long way from the days when it was a foliage-intensive, somewhat rangy plant with tiny blooms at the end of long stems! 'Little Sundial' is the most floriferous cultivar yet, and also one of the most compact, with excellent basal branching and nonstop bicolored flowers all summer long.
These blooms are so pretty. Measuring 1½ inches wide, they are golden-yellow with a small maroon dot at the base of each petal, creating a "clock" look. And they arise by the hundred on plants just 6 to 12 inches high and 8 to 14 inches wide, held nicely above the foliage and refusing to flop!
Butterflies adore this plant, and deer avoid it. Like all Coreopsis, 'Little Sundial' is wonderfully resistant to pests and diseases, and once established in a sunny, well-drained garden spot or container, it will put up with just about anything -- drought, humidity, cold, poor soil, and more.
'Little Sundial' is the product of Dutch breeder Luit van Delft, and makes a charming addition to any garden design. We are proud to offer this flowering powerhouse, and highly recommend it for years of dependable beauty. Zones 4-9.
