You will be hard pressed to find a group of plants with more beauty and tenacity than those of the genus Coreopsis. These hardy relatives of asters resemble miniature sunflowers when in bloom and my, what a show that is. All the native Coreopsis are aggressive plants. Given a decent amount of sun, these plants can establish in a variety of soil conditions. From wet to dry, they keep on growing. Spreading readily underground, a few individuals can quickly form a thicket of bright yellow flowers. This can be quite nice in the right setting. Blooming almost continually from early summer and well into fall, each species offers rich rewards for pollinating insects. Some farmers even use Coreopsis for honey production. Coreopsis as a whole produce copious amounts of seeds that birds go crazy for. What the birds don’t manage to eat will fall to the ground and, over the course of a few seasons, will form a considerable seed bank, ensuring ample reproduction for years to come. Though all the species we offer are yellow, each has its own appeal. Lance leaf and prairie coreopsis (Coreopsis lanceolata –http://bit.ly/1pgQy6i and Coreopsis palmata – http://bit.ly/1nkkCNi) are modestly sized plants but for something truly spectacular, why not try tall coreopsis (Coreopsis tripteris – http://bit.ly/1piUZ2C). Growing upwards of 7 feet, this species is quite the spectacle. If you don’t have a lot of luck with other plants, coreopsis are here to change that.
