Flower Friday - Coreopsis

Coreopsis

This week's featured flower is - Coreopsis!  These bright and sunny daisy-like flowers bloom all summer long.  This perennial has airy, needle-like foliage and grows to be about two feet tall.  It does well in full sun and is very drought tolerant.  Butterflies seem to like these bright yellow flowers.  They are very easy to grow and bloom well year after year.  There are several varieties of Coreopsis, and their colors range from white to yellow to pink.  If you would like to learn more about this cheerful perennial, check out Fine Gardening's Coreopsis page, Garden Guides' Coreopsis page, or Wikipedia's Coreopsis page.
