Plains Coreopsis
(Coreopsis tinctoria) 

Plains Coreopsis, often called Calliopsis, is an airy plant with soft, fern-like foliage. It occurs naturally from Minnesota to California and prefers full sun and well-drained soils. Plains Coreopsis grows to a height of 45 to 91 cm (18 to 36 in.). These daisy-like flowers can range from yellow, to yellow with maroon centers, to all maroon flowers; with variations in between. A prolific bloomer (May to August), Plains Coreopsis makes a good cut flower.

Seed should be sown outdoors after the last frost, and should be planted 0.3 to 0.6 cm (? to ¼ in.) deep. Plants should flower in about three months. Plants can reseed themselves once established.
