This prairie flower also known by the name "Calliopsis" (Coreopsis tinctoria) will grow in a variety of soil and light conditions, and is tolerant of hot weather and drought. The bright and cheery flowers yield a mahogany colored natural dye, or are a popular and easy to grow cut flower for market, blooming continuously as long as temperate weather persists. Keep deadheading spent flowers to prolong the blooming period. Depending on soil type, plant height will vary but may require support in very rich soils.
