Coreopsis Verticillata, a.k.a. Threadleaf Tickseed
I purchased this at the Garden In the Woods end-of-season sale without knowing what I was getting. And I’m not disappointed! These perennials produce copious yellow blooms and thrive in my dry, hot front beds. They have been in bloom for over a month now, and it sounds like it will keep going until the first frost.
This plant is native to the southeast of the US.
