Plains Coreopsis is a native annual wildflower growing to 4 feet but usually shorter. It prefers full sun in mesic, sandy, well drained soils but tolerates loam, clay loam and even clay.

During the blooming period, Plains Coreopsis produces showy flower heads in abundance.

Great for first year color and use in erosion prone conditions. Even though it's considered an annual, it can re-seed itself sometimes up to 2 growing seasons.

Originally from the tall grass prairie regions, it is currently found throughout the United States.
