Native to North America, Coreopsis lanceolata (Lanceleaf Tickseed) is an upright herbaceous perennial boasting a profusion of daisy-like bright yellow flowers, up to 2 in. across (5 cm), adorned with flat yellow center disks. Blooming from late spring to midsummer, each blossom features 8 yellow rays, toothed at their tips. They are borne singly atop slender, erect stems and rise above a basal tuft of narrow, hairy, lance-shaped leaves. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought, this Coreopsis is a good garden performer. It grows in small clumps but forms extensive colonies. Perfect for wildflower gardens, prairies and meadows. Nice in a vase, the showy golden flowers are a popular plant for visiting pollinators.

  • Grows up to 12-24 in. tall (30-60 cm) and 12-18 in. wide (30-45 cm). Freely self seeds in optimum conditions.
  • Thrives in full sun in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils.
  • Easy to grow, relatively pest and disease free, this Coreopsis is a favorite of butterflies but is ignored by deer.
  • Welcomed addition to wildflower gardens, cottage gardens or prairies and meadows.
  • Plants may be cut back hard in summer if foliage sprawls or becomes unkempt.
  • Prompt deadheading of spent flowers may encourage additional bloom and prevents any unwanted self-seeding.
