Coreopsis

Coreopsis

These North American native perennials (meaning they grow back year after year) bring bright colors and texture to the flower garden. Most have small, yellow, daisy-like flowers ('Moonbeam,' 'Zagreb') with one pink exception (C. rosea). They flower all summer long. The plants mostly have thin and ferny leaves, thus one of their common names: thread-leaf coreopsis. Plant coreopsis in full sun in well-drained soil. Water weekly throughout the first summer. Water infrequently once the plant is established - just two or three times during the summer.
