This is what I need to know about my coreopsis.

Coreopsis beetles love the leaf as a snack. Larks and adults both eat the leaves. This beetle is difficult to control. These beetles cause so much damage to plants that it is often too late for chemical control.

Is tickseed the same thing as coreopsis? Tickseed (Coreopsis Coreopsis), Pot of Gold Coreopsis are all prized for their brightly colored flowers and ability to withstand most soil types. There are more than 100 varieties and many hybrids available, including annuals and perennials.

Do you deadhead tickseed in this regard?

After the flower has faded, the plant will not make new flower buds. After all the blooms have stopped, take out the entire stem. If deadheaded frequently, most large-flowered tickseeds will continue to flower until fall, but they are most prolifically in the hot, long days of midsummer.

It is also known as tickseed.

Specific epithet refers to having whorls that are related to the leaves. Coreopsis plants are often called tickseed due to their similarity to tick-like seeds.
