You can deadhead your coreopsis by removing each faded flowers. For plants with a profusion of tiny flowers, like threadleaf coreopsis, it is often easier to deadhead by shearing back the whole plant. It will take a little longer to set new flowers, but it will later in the season. Hope this answers your question.
