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. 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.

I have been gardening since I was 12. After the years, I experimented with seeds and what could grow with little effort in my region and this plant really takes to the sandy soil in Florida. I have had them return year and year again, so this is a good investment when it comes to landscaping mixed with Rudbeckia (Black Eyed Susans) which bloom later when the Coreopsis finish. They both return and extend the spring and summer garden season. One of my favorite plants to grow in Florida!
