Dyer's Coreopsis

$3.95

Coreopsis tinctoria

Days to Maturity: 85

Dyer’s Coreopsis, also called golden tickseed or calliopsis, is native to North America and produces rich colors of dye ranging from golden yellows to deep orange to olive green and bronze-y brown. The flowers are the main dyestuff, and come in an unpredictable variety of petal shapes, sizes, and gold-maroon-red combinations. Coreopsis works best on protein fibers and yields more muted shades on cellulose fibers. Very fun in the garden!

 

Planting Instructions: Start Dyer's Coreopsis seeds indoors 6 weeks before last frost, and transplant after frost, or plant directly outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Plant 1/4" deep and sprinkle lightly with soil, allowing light to reach seeds which helps germination. When flowers begin, pick often to maximize flower production.

Seed Saving Instructions: Allow some flowers to go to seed. Collect seed when fully dry. Store seeds in a paper or mesh bag in a cool, dark and dry location.
