Coreopsis lanceolata (Lanceleaf Coreopsis)
Lanceleaf Coreopsis is an easy to grow plant with cheerful yellow blooms. It is a short-lived perennial that re-seeds easily. The flowers are frequented by pollinators. Deadheading Coreopsis prolongs its blooming period. It should not be over-watered or over-fertilized. It prefers soils low in organic matter. Poor or rocky soils are perfect for Coreopsis.
Lanceleaf Coreopsis does well in borders, cottage gardens, naturalized areas, pollinator gardens, and rock gardens. It needs full sun but will tolerate partial shade.
