Summary

Coreopsis tripteris ‘Gold Standard’ is a Mt. Cuba Center Introduction and part of the Mt. Cuba Collection™. Introduced in 2016 and commonly referred to as Gold Standard tall tickseed, this native perennial is a fantastic selection of the hardy and adaptable species Coreopsis tripteris. This cultivar originated from seed originally collected in Alabama and was selected for its shorter stature and sturdy stems. ‘Gold Standard’ tall tickseed was included in Mt. Cuba Center’s Coreopsis trial and proved to be a top performer amongst many other well established and commercially available tickseeds. Coreopis tripteris ‘Gold Standard’ blooms for two months from late summer into fall and is incredibly disease resistant. Great companion plants include Vernonia novaboracensis, Symphyotrichum laeve var. laeve, Schizachyrium scoparium, Echinacea purpurea, and Solidago speciosa.
