Good wildlife plant. Feeds many pollinating insects & birds. A little tall for formal beds.
Item #: COTRIs
Binomial Coreopsis tripteris

As the tallest coreopsis we have in Missouri, Tall Coreopsis may not be the best choice for a formal flower bed.  But in large plantings, a colony of tall coreopsis is quite a sight.  It is a good wildlife plant, feeding many pollinating insects and birds.  Unlike most coreopsis species, tall coreopsis has a brown center instead of yellow.
