Coreopsis (Coreopsis spp.)
Copyright: Fred Miller
This plant brings you beautiful colored flowers that bloom in many colors of yellow, pink, red, or orange, depending on the species. The daisy-like shaped flowers have toothed tips, and their wiry stems can vary from 9 inches to 3 feet tall, depending on the species. As with most butterfly garden plants, these beauties love full sun. They are easy to grow and multiply independently; removing the old blooms will stimulate new buds. They are a gorgeous addition to any garden and a lovely cut flower to enjoy indoors.
