Coreopsis lanceolata


A favorite native perennial of more than twenty bee species, Coreopsis lanceolata is as beloved by wildlife as it is by gardeners. Commonly, it’s known as Lanceleaf Coreopsis for its slender, slightly pubescent linear-elliptic foliage, large golden yellow flowers with brighter yellow ray petals and warmer orange interior disk petals. Flowers are borne on wiry, stiff stems from late June to early August. The delicate, fluffy seedheads are enjoyed by songbirds from late summer to the end of the growing season, and any remaining seeds easily intersperse themselves throughout the garden, making for a broad and cohesive display the following year. Its low maintenance attitude, ability to tolerate dry soils and periodic drought, and its prolific bloom period make Coreopsis lanceolata a lovely addition to the full sun perennial border, or to the naturalized pollinator garden. Lanceleaf Coreopsis is a host plant for the larvae of the Wavy-lined Emerald moth to boot.
