tickseed Interesting Notes

Capped with small golden daisy-like flowers atop fine filigreed foliage, Coreopsis ‘Gilded Lace’ has true flower power that lasts from mid-summer till autumn. ‘Gilded Lace’ grows 3’-5’ tall and up to 3’ wide and is covered in flowers and pollinators all summer long. A beautiful statement plant in a perennial border or en masse in the garden, ‘Gilded Lace’ was highly rated in Mt. Cuba Center’s 2016 Coreopsis Research Report for its strong, long-lasting bloom, habit, disease resistance, and pollinator value.

Believed to be a naturally occurring hybrid cross of C. verticillata and C. tripteris found by Peter Heus, ‘Gilded Lace’ was singled out by its lacy foliage which is unique on a plant this size. North American native Coreopsis grows well in full sun in lean, rocky soils. It is tolerant of heat, humidity, and drought. In sites with more consistent moisture and higher organic matter content, plants will grow fuller and taller, sometimes reaching over 4.5’ in height and will sometimes start to lean. If this is the case in a garden setting, place near other tall plants for it to sprawl along or pinch the plant in early summer.

Coreopsis ‘Gilded Lace’ tops out at about 5’ in our trial gardens, displaying how in richer soils the plant does grow quite a bit larger. It spreads steadily by its rhizomes, spreading two feet over three years. The flowers are an important source of nectar for many different pollinators including solitary wasps, butterflies, skippers, and various flies.
