A compact version of a beloved wildflower. As this plant matures to 40 cm (15") height it is perfect for the front of the border. Dwarf Plains Coreopsis is a self-seeding annual that has good heat tolerance and prefers sandy well drained soil. While this specie has decent drought tolerance it is most often found growing naturally in areas that receive regular rainfall. A valuable North American native plant for providing first year colour in meadow mixes.
