The bright yellow, daisy-like flowers are borne on long slender stems. The bloom period is from May to August. Lance-leaved Coreopsis makes an excellent cut flower. The leaves are narrow, and lance-shaped.
Lance-leaved Coreopsis needs full sun and can tolerate fairly droughty conditions. It grows on a wide range of soil types, but prefers sandy or well-drained soils.
Plant seed 0.3 to 0.6 cm (? to ¼ in.) deep without burying the seed, since light is needed for germination. Planting dates can be either spring or fall. Most plants will not begin flowering until the second year. The seed is an available food source for birds.
