Description

Coreopsis 'Sterntaler', also known as Tickseed, is a sun-loving, easy-to-grow plant that is sure to add a pop of colour to your garden. With its vibrant yellow petals and red centres, it's hard not to smile when you see it. This low-maintenance plant is perfect for beginner gardeners or those who don't have a lot of time to dedicate to their garden. It thrives in full sun and well-draining soil, making it a great addition to rock gardens, borders, or as a container plant. Coreopsis 'Sterntaler' is drought-tolerant, so you don't have to worry about watering it frequently. In fact, overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's best to let the soil dry out between waterings. This plant is a self-seeder, so if you leave the spent flowers on the plant, it will produce new growth the following season. However, if you prefer a more manicured look, deadheading spent flowers will keep it looking neat and tidy. Coreopsis 'Sterntaler' holds the RHS Plants for Pollinators, a favourite of pollinators, attracting bees and butterflies to your garden. It's a great plant for adding some life and movement to your outdoor space. Overall, 'Sterntaler' is cheerful and an easy-to-care-for plant that is sure to brighten up any garden or patio. With its low maintenance requirements and beautiful blooms, it's a must-have for any gardener looking to add some sunshine to their space.

Planting Conditions

Coreopsis 'Sterntaler' grows best in well-draining soil and full sun. It can tolerate some light shade, but it will produce fewer blooms. When planting, make sure to space at least 18 inches apart to allow for proper growth. It is important to keep the soil consistently moist during the first few weeks after planting to help establish the roots. Once established, the plant is relatively low maintenance and can tolerate some drought conditions. Regular deadheading of spent blooms will encourage the plant to produce more flowers throughout the season.

Watering & Feeding

Coreopsis 'Sterntaler' is a low-maintenance plant that is quite easy to care for. When it comes to watering, it is important to keep the soil moist but not too wet. Water deeply once a week, but be sure to check the soil between waterings to avoid over-watering. If the soil feels dry to the touch, it's time to water again. It's best to water in the morning to give the plant time to dry off during the day. As for feeding, Coreopsis Sterntaler does not require a lot of fertilisation. However, it will benefit from a light application of balanced fertiliser in the Spring to promote healthy growth and flowering. You can also apply a bloom-boosting fertiliser during the growing season to encourage more blooms. It's important to note that over-fertilisation can cause the plant to become leggy and produce fewer flowers, so be sure to follow the instructions on the fertiliser package and use it sparingly.

General Care

Coreopsis 'Sterntaler' is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to care for. Deadheading the spent flowers will encourage the plant to continue producing new blooms throughout the growing season. It is also recommended to cut back the plant after the first flush of blooms has faded to promote a more compact, bushy habit and prevent self-seeding. Coreopsis 'Sterntaler' is generally a disease-resistant plant but may occasionally be affected by fungal diseases such as powdery mildew. To prevent this, ensure good air circulation around the plant, avoid overhead watering, and remove any infected leaves. Overall, with a little care and attention, Coreopsis Sterntaler will reward you with an abundance of cheerful yellow flowers all season long.
