Coreopsis palmata Prairie Coreopsis
A delightful Missouri and Illinois native perennial, Prairie Coreopsis, Coreopsis palmata, features bright yellow, daisy-like flowers May – July. Plants will grow 1.5-2.5′ tall. Also known as Stiff Coreopsis and Prairie Tickseed. It naturally is at home in prairies, glades and dry open woods throughout many parts of the US.
Prairie Coreopsis blends beautifully with other native plants in meadow, pollinator, or cutting gardens. Butterflies love it, deer leave it alone. This beauty naturalizes easily, and over time will form large colonizes. It spreads by rhizomes and self-seeding. An ideal plant for your toughest, hot dry spots. It thrives in dry conditions and even poor rocky or sandy soil.
Plant in full sun in average well draining soil. Deadheading spent flowers will encourage more blossoms.
