Plant Information

North American Native Wildflowers: Our beautiful wild Coreopsis species, and how they've been improved. The Coreopsis group is one of the great gifts of North America to the plant world. Almost all the species of Coreopsis that the world now knows and loves are North American native wildflowers. The following ones are particularly famous, and all these are native over most of the eastern states.

Plains Coreopsis, C. tinctoria, also called Calliopsis, is a much-loved wild annual and is a mainstay of wildflower meadow seed mixtures. (See seed in our Wildflower Encyclopedia)
Lanceleaf Coreopsis, C. lanceolata is the famous perennial golden daisy that decorates fields over almost the whole east. (See seed in our Wildlfower Encyclopedia)
The Rosy Coreopsis, C. rosea is another wild perennial which is finer-leaved than Lanceleaf, and has been hybridized into some of the best new colors and forms.
Thread Leaf Coreopsis, C. verticillata is a small delicate-appearing perennial wildflower with fine leaves and stems. This one has been made into many popular garden hybrids, most famous being Moonbeam, a huge hit when it hit the gardening market.
Tickseed Coreopsis C. grandiflora is a common southern native and has golden flowers 1 to 2 1/2 inches across.

Since these wonderful plants are North American natives, their hybrids are right at home in your perennial gardens.

Coreopsis Sunset Strip


from Rochester NY

Verified Reviewer

Comments about American Meadows Coreopsis Sunset Strip:

This coreopsis does have small flowers but not very different from most coreopsis. I have almost every variety offered in my zone 6. It provides a color that is very difficult to find, especially one that blooms all continuously. It is hardy and likes full sun. Very typical. I have ordered 6 from American Meadows and am about to order 4 more. This plant gives a pop that no other can. Very hard to find. American Meadows is the only place I can find it now.

Comments about American Meadows Coreopsis Sunset Strip:

This flower has struggled through it's first year, but survived! Hoping for a better result out of it next year. More for a field garden look. Kinda messy & unruly in form. Blooms are very petite unlike the Coreopsis I am accustom to.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
