Propagation: Propagate the perennial coreopsis species by dividing the rhizomatous root crown in winter or early spring. Seeds germinate in 2-3 weeks and thread leaf coreopsis sometimes will self-sow.
Native to: Thread leaf coreopsis grows naturally in the southeastern united states from maryland and virginia to west virginia, tennessee and arkansas, and south to northern florida. It occurs in dry, thin woods and open pinelands.
Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - use thread leaf coreopsis in perennial beds and borders, and in naturalistic or wildflower gardens. Even when not in bloom, thread leaf coreopsis stands out with its beautiful lacy foliage. Flowers last for several days in water, making thread leaf coreopsis especially desirable for cut flower arrangements. Honeybees and butterflies appreciate the copious nectar produced by these pretty yellow daisies. Care: divide the root crown every third year to maintain vigor and deadhead frequently to encourage more flowering. Rabbits may eat young plants.
