From New York south to Florida, you are liable to run across Coreopsis major in open dry woodlands. So, why is it not grown in everyone's garden? Probably because it looks less than desirable in the woods. When you plant Coreopsis major in full sun, it becomes a killer perennial. In five years, the spreading rootstock produces a 5' clump of sturdy 3' tall stems clothed in whorled green, airy-textured leaves. From late spring through midsummer, the drought-tolerant clumps are topped with 2" yellow daisies...simply superb!
