Lanceleaf Coreopsis (coreopsis lanceolata): Native wildflower brought into cultivation. Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prompt deadheading of spent flower stalks encourages additional bloom and prevents any unwanted self-seeding. Freely self-seeds. Plants may be cut back hard in summer if foliage sprawls or becomes unkempt. Division may be needed every 2-3 years to maintain robustness.
