Lance-leaf Coreopsis waves brightly in late spring and early summer on sunny, even hot sites with dry, sandy or poor soil. The bright yellow, daisy-like flowers are about 1 1/2" in diameter and bloom singly on long stems. Promptly dead-head spent blossoms to prolong the bloom period. The ray petals have four deep lobes on their margins. This species also is commonly called Sand Coreopsis, or Tickseed because many think the seed looks like Ticks.

The yellow flowers can be found along roadsides and in fields, prairies, pinelands, savannas and swales. Suitable for wildflower mixtures and pollinator conservation.

The Lance Leaved Coreopsis is a hardy, drought tolerant perennial. In its first year of growth this plant will develop significantly and may produce a few blooms. By its second year the Lance Leaved Coreopsis will come into a full bloom. Often called Tickseed, the seeds produced by this flower resemble certain insects. A broad range of soil compositions can support growth and it is native to many states found throughout the country, as well as some places in both Mexico and Canada. Planting should be done in full sun or partial shade. Lance Leaved Coreopsis can withstand transplanting and may be started either indoors or outdoors. It may need to be staked up once it is full grown. Deadheading flowers throughout their bloom season will provide prolonged and continuous blooms. The vibrant color of this flower looks brilliant beside Larkspur and Daisies. If the seeds have the opportunity to make direct contact with soil the Lance Leaved Coreopsis may reseed itself. The seeds should be planted in the spring, although in most U.S. states seeds planted during the fall planting season will likely subsist.
