    This daisy-like flower with bright yellow rays makes an excellent cut flower that lasts about seven to ten days in a vase. Very drought-tolerant, Lanceleaf Coreopsis blooms continuously from June through July creating a fantastic summer display and it can tolerate some shade. Butterflies are regular visitors and songbirds feast on the seeds in late summer. Under ideal conditions Coreopsis lanceolata will bloom its first year and its foliage makes an attractive ground cover.
