Attributes:  Attracts butterflies — Drought tolerant — Deer resistant — Cut flower

Native to open woodlands, prairies, and meadows throughout much of the United States, Coreopsis lanceolata is easy to grow, drought-tolerant, and not favored by deer.  The cheery yellow flowers can bloom from late spring through the summer, especially with regular deadheading, are great for use as cut flowers, and attract butterflies.  The merits of Lanceleaf Coreopsis have been recognized in this country since at least 1804, when Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon listed it in his seed catalog. zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8,zone9,zone0
