Lanceleaf Coreopsis blooms for weeks on end, creating a fantastic early summer display of golden yellow flowers. Butterflies are regular visitors, and songbirds feed on the ripe seeds in late summer. This durable plant grows in any well-drained soil, and exalts in dry sandy soils.
Host plant for several small species of moths, including the Wavy-Lined Emerald. As many as 22 native bee species rely on plants in the Coreopsis genus.
