Lance Leaved Coreopsis

Lance leaved coreopsis grows in the sandhills and swamp edges of North-Central and North Florida. This is one of our most drought tolerant native wildflowers that puts on a great show in the spring. By June, the plant stops flowering, yet continues to grow and increase in size from the many germinating seedlings and offshoots.

The ten inch height makes this a great border plant. A little fertilizer and water during the driest months will keep it healthy.

Mix with other short native Florida wildflowers for a unique edge. Try mimosa, Havana scullcap, spiderwort, pineland petunia and pineland pennyroyal, love grass, silkgrass, cat tongue, beach verbena, blazing star and silphium.
