Both flowers and leaves are very attractive. This species, along with other Coreopsis species, is great for attracting bees in the early- to mid-growing season. Many of the domestic coreopsis varieties are derived from this species.

When you visit us in May or June, you can see how native plants can beautify the highways as lanceleaf coreopsis blooms for miles along highway 54. It is easy to grow from seed and makes a good nurse crop for prairie and glade restoration projects.
