Lance-Leaf Coreopsis


Coreopsis lanceolata

Coreopsis lanceolata, commonly called lance-leaf coreopsis, is a native wildflower that grows to 2' tall and occurs in prairies, meadows, fields, and roadsides. Plants in the genus Coreopsis are sometimes commonly called tickseed about the seeds' resemblance 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 form colonies, becoming planted in areas where this would not be a problem.

Deadheading of spent flowers will help control self-seeding and encourage additional blooms, and the plant may need division every 2-3 years to maintain robustness. They can initially cut it back hard if they become too sprawl. Many cultivars of this species are available, including hybrids with Coreopsis Grandiflora.
