Coreopsis lanceolata Lanceleaf Coreopsis



Coreopsis lanceolata blooms a bright golden yellow above narrow lance-shaped leaves from May to July. This easy low-maintenance perennial thrives in poor soil with good drainage and dry to medium moisture. Native to much of the continental United States, it attracts butterflies, birds, native bees, and is the host plant for several species of moth. 

Known as Lanceleaf Coreopsis or Tickseed, it tolerates heat, humidity, drought, and is deer resistant. It readily self-seeds. Dead-heading promotes longer bloom time and prevents unwanted self-seeding.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.
