How to Grow and Care for Nana Coreopsis (Tickseed) Plant

Nana Coreopsis (Tickseed) Plant (Coreopsis auriculata ‘Nana’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 4-9 outdoors


Find a spot with well-drained soil and full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).

Plant your Coreopsis in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots and add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds.

If you’re planting in a container, select a pot that’s about twice the size of your plant’s shipped container, and use organic soil. Place your plant, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio.


Coreopsis plants prefer moist, well-drained soil, but can tolerate some drought. Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When soil is dry about 3 inches down, it’s time to water your plant.

If your plant is in a container, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.


Deadheading your Coreopsis plants encourage better blooming and color throughout the season.
