• Coreopsis lanceolata - Lance-leaved Coreopsis


    "Lanceleaf coreopsis is a native wildflower in the Asteraceae (daisy) family that typically grows to 2' tall and occurs in prairies, glades, fields, and roadsides. Plants in the genus Coreopsis are sometimes commonly called tickseed in reference to the resemblance of the seeds to ticks. It prefers full sun with moist, well-drained soil but can sprawl if grown in too fertile soil. It can be an aggressive self-seeder and will form colonies and should be planted in areas where this would not be a problem. Deadheading of spent flowers will help control self-seeding and encourage additional blooms. Division may be needed every 2-3 years to maintain robustness. They can be cut back hard if they become too sprawly. Many cultivars of this species are available, including hybrids with Coreopsis grandiflora.

    "This plant is resistant to damage by deer." (North Carolina Extension)
