Planting Instructions:
Sow outdoors in fall. Start indoors in spring by placing seeds into a bag of moistened seed starting mix or wet paper towel and place it in the refrigerator for 4-8 weeks, then sow indoors. Gently press seeds into soil, but do not cover as they require light to germinate.

Additional Tips:
The blossoms of the Coreopsis can be used to make yellow and orange dye.

Remove withered flowers to encourage continual bloom until the first frost.

Seed Saving:
Nutlets are mature and ready for collection about four weeks after the flowers wither. Watch the inner series of bracts; when they begin to darken, it is time to collect. Remove chaff and store in containers. Stores for at least three years.

Companion Plants:
Plant with salvia, yarrow, blanket flower, purple coneflower, lavender, aster.
