Lance-leaf coreopsis is a long-lived, native perennial flower. It grows as a broad clump of slender green leaves. In mid-summer, it produces daisy-like, bright yellow flowers. Works well in masses or wildflower areas. May rebloom throughout the summer.
Cutting flower stems to the leaves after flowering will prolong bloom and improve appearance. Cut plant to ground level in late winter or early spring.
