Description

Coreopsis Lancelata, also known as Sand tickseed or Lanceleaf Coreopsis, is a perennial wildflower native to Michigan and the UP. It reaches 2 feet tall and flowers from May to August with exuberant drifts of yellow blossoms. The foliage is mostly low and mounding when not in flower. It prefers full sun, dry soil and will grow in clay, loam or sand. It even grows in dune sand. This plant is perfect for difficult pine areas and jack pine as it will grow in dappled shade. Tolerates high mowing and can be incorporated into alternative lawns.  This is an ideal plant for naturalizing meadows in the central UP and other sandy areas. Also, a great choice for septic drain fields. A quart will include 1 individual plant.
