Coreopsis grandiflora is a cluster of semi-erect stems with opposite narrow leaves topped with bright flowers. Flowers are bright yellow and resemble daisies. Attracts numerous native bees and birds love the seeds. They will often self-seed and form dense colonies, but individual plants can be short-lived. Open sunny areas with rocky or poor soils are the natural habitat of this drought-tolerant plant.
