Coreopsis lanceolata (Lanceleaf Coreopsis)

Golden yellow flowers on tall, delicate stems usually less than 2 feet in height in May and June. Lanceleaf Coreopsis is a good cut flower and an excellent choice for most gardens. Deadheading, or cutting back spent flowers can extend blooming. You may also need to cut plants back hard in summer as they tend to sprawl. Birds feast on the seed heads. Plants self-seed abundantly.
