Botanical Name

COREOPSIS auriculata 'Zamphir'

Plant Common Name

Lobed Coreopsis, Lobed Tickseed, Zamphir Tickseed

General Description

Lobed coreopsis is an herbaceous perennial grown for its long-blooming masses of cheery orange-yellow daisies in late spring and summer. Unlike other cultivars of this Southeast United States native, 'Zamphir' has flowers with trumpet-shaped "petals". The rounded, lobed leaves are medium-green.

Grow this low-maintenance plant in well-drained soil and sun. It tolerates humidity and moderate drought. Shear it back in midsummer if it sprawls. This long-lived plant is perfect in meadows, as edging alongside paths, or in the front of a mixed border.
