Culture: Easily grown in dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerant of heat, humidity and some drought. Plants may be sheared in mid to late summer (August) to promote a fall rebloom and to remove any sprawling or unkempt foliage. Plants will spread by rhizomes, but reseeding will not occur.
Noteworthy Characteristics: ‘Jethro Tull’ is a compact golden-yellow coreopsis (tickseed) that grows in an upright, outward-spreading mound to only 18″ tall. It is a hybrid cross of Coreopsis auriculata ‘Zamfir’ (female parent) and Coreopsis lanceolata ‘Early Sunrise’ (male parent). Flowers (each to 2″ diameter) feature tubular golden-yellow rays that are fluted toward the apex. Rays surround darker yellow center disks. Flowers bloom profusely from late spring to fall. Elliptic green leaves (to 3″ long). Zones 5 to 9.
