                        Coreopsis tinctoria 'Mahogany Midget' has reddish-maroon flowers and is a prolific bloomer. Plants grow 12-18 inches tall. Mixes well with grasses and plants readily reseed. Birds and butterflies also like this plant: the butterflies for the flowers and the birds for the seeds. Long blooming period from May to August, plants are more or less annuals but self seed. Coreopsis grow best in any fertile, garden soil that is well drained and has a full exposure to the sun. Sow indoors at 70-degree temperature, 4 to 6 weeks before it is safe to plant outside. Seeds may also be sown directly where they are to grow when the soil is warm, cover lightly. Good subjects for large pots and cut flowers for small diplays. The attracrtive lacy foliage and large dark flowers mix well with other large pot plants. Give them a hair cut to promote shorter and bushy plants.

                            Atlantic Coreopsis

                            A tall erect growing plant with branched stems and three palmate leaves. Blooming from mid summer to late fall with 2' wide soft golden yellow that looks like glowing butter. Flowers turning brown or purplish. Forms clumps by rhizomes (stems that spread out under ground.) Plants grow 4 to 8+ feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide but in good soil the plants will spread indefinitely, forming a large, showy clump. Plant in well drained soil in full sun or light shade. Deadhead to promote more flowering. This is a nice tall plant for the prairie garden with great foliage texture-at least in my opinion. A good tall plant that will keep on blooming in late summer into late fall. I like the soft appearance of this plant with the flowers mixed in atop the clumps, which can be very thick if grown well. Easily grown and long lived, grows well even in part shade. Effective used along the edge of the woods. A good choice for poor, dry soils. Plants can self seed on open soils, and it is best to give the plants some space to fill in. Birds like to eat the seeds in the fall.
