Profuse yellow blossoms with deep red centers are a delightful addition to a meadow or garden. This annual is very easy to grow and makes an excellent choice for beginning gardeners.
This plant's blazing brightness and heat-loving, drought tolerant growth has made it one of the most well known native wildflowers, as well as being a popular choice of beginning gardeners and master gardeners alike. Also known as Dye Flower, Native Americans once used its blossoms for making yellow and orange dyes. The genus name Coreopsis, derived from the Greek "koris," refers to the resemblance of Plains coreopsis seeds to bedbugs. The flowers in this family have become especially well loved by the citizens of the state of Florida, who appointed Coreopsis as their official state wildflower in 1991.
