Coreopsis basalis, commonly known as goldenmane tickseed or sand tickseed, is a species of perennial herbaceous plant native to the southeastern United States. Here's a description of its key characteristics:

Appearance: Coreopsis basalis typically grows to a height of about 30 to 60 centimeters (12 to 24 inches). It forms clumps of slender stems that are usually erect or ascending. The plant has a bushy, somewhat mounded appearance.

Leaves: The leaves of Coreopsis basalis are opposite, meaning they grow in pairs along the stem, and they are usually deeply divided into narrow segments. The leaves are typically green in color and have a somewhat fern-like appearance.

Flowers: The flowers of goldenmane tickseed are the highlight of the plant, featuring bright yellow, daisy-like blooms with distinctive red or maroon centers. Each flower head is typically around 2 to 3 centimeters (0.8 to 1.2 inches) in diameter. The flowers are borne singly or in small clusters at the ends of the stems.

Blooming Period: Coreopsis basalis typically blooms from late spring through summer, attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies with its vibrant flowers.

Habitat: This species is often found in sandy or well-drained soils in open woodlands, prairies, meadows, and along roadsides. It prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade.

Cultural Uses: Goldenmane tickseed is popular in gardens and landscaping for its cheerful flowers and easy-to-grow nature. It is often used in borders, rock gardens, and wildflower meadows. It also makes a good cut flower.

Ecological Importance: Like other Coreopsis species, C. basalis provides nectar and pollen for pollinators, supporting local biodiversity. Its seeds are also a food source for birds and small mammals.

Growing Instructions for the Goldenmane Coreopsis

The seeds can be sown on the ground in the spring or summer or they can be grown in pots at any time of the year. 1. The seeds like moist, well-drained soil. Use a sterile seed starter mix, if available. It prevents soil fungi from damaging the seeds and the seedlings. If not available, then make a mixture of half potting soil and half sand, perlite or vermiculite. 2. Put the soil in a pot. 3. Sow the seeds on the soil. 4. Water the soil so that it is moist but not wet. 5. Place the pots in an area with warm temperatures in full sun or part shade. The seeds germinate in 5 to 20 days. 6. When the seedlings are a few inches tall, they can be transplanted.
