Tickseed is a popular perennial that will suit both the modern city gardens as well as natural landscapes in the country. Darrell R. Probst is an American breeder from Hubbardstone in Massachusetts and with his over 40 varieties bred so far he can truly be called a coreopsis expert. He introduced several series and Star Cluster (PP23305 from 2012) belongs to the BIG BANG™ series.

Star Cluster is a slightly taller tickseed variety producing a profusion of creamy white to very pale yellow, daisy-like flowers atop about 50 cm tall stems. They are decorated with deep burgundy-maroon blotches near golden yellow centres and bloom from June until the first frost. Leaves are narrowly lance-shaped, fresh green, deciduous, and healthy. Star Cluster is a clump forming perennial that does not seed around.

It will grow in nearly any soil and as it withstands drought it is popular for rockeries. Making it a glowing feature in your perennial garden bed is the reasonable and expected way of using it. But placing it among shrubs with different foliage and flowers will mean an honour for this easy and affordable beauty. Fully hardy to at least -29°C (USDA zone 5).
