Coreopsis- Dwarf Lance Leaved
Coreopsis lanceolata
These "easy to grow" wildflowers are a shorter member of the family that bloom late summer. A popular choice of beginning gardeners and master gardeners alike, who have limited space in their garden. This wildflower is native to almost the entire US, including our great state of Florida. 

This plant's blazing brightness and heat-loving, drought tolerant growth has made it one of the most well known native wildflowers. The genus name Coreopsis, derived from the Greek "koris," refers to the resemblance of the 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. This plant likes almost any soil type. Save the well amended areas for the fruits and veggies. Coreopsis needs regular watering throughout it's early days, but is very drought tolerant when established. Direct sow in the Fall to let the seeds over-winter for a Spring and Summer bloom. If planting seeds in the Spring or Summer, the seeds need 2-4 weeks of cold/wet stratification.
