Along with the native species, hybridizers have developed cultivars with a number of interesting traits. Coreopsis is best described as paraphyletic. Coreopsis lanceolata is a great choice for any gardener with a sunny spot. There are over species available and countless hybrids, including both annuals and perennials.

The taller varieties are great at the back of the border and well suited to the cutting garden while the shorter, mounding varieties are perfect for edging. Coreopsis usually self-sow in the garden. Flowers and Fruits Coreopsis lanceolata produces solitary showy, yellow many-stellate flowers from June to August.

The dark-green, simple leaves are opposite. There is, however a notable variety, Coreopsis rosea, with lovely rose pink blossoms. Plant seeds in early spring, or divide clumps of established growth by teasing the younger rosettes apart from the main crown.

This is an important pollen source for our fragile honeybee population and many butterflies also enjoy visiting the sunny blossoms. After the plants settle in, they are drought tolerant, however blooming will suffer since that is a survival mechanism allowing your coreopsis lives to bloom another season.

My favorite, and the one I have in my garden is 'Jethro Tull'. The Coreopsis foliage varies across varieties, from large and low-growing leaves to mounds of narrow, finely-textured leaves.
