This is one tough plant! It's in my "hellstrip" garden, about 12 square feet bordered by 2 concrete driveway aprons, the sidewalk, and the asphalt road. I watered that garden occasionally the first couple of years, and maybe if we hadn't had any rain for a few weeks. It blooms constantly! I hesitate to say "good for xeriscaping," because people think that means no watering ever. Most good xeriscaping plants still need water the first few years while they are establishing roots.

Over the past 15 years, it has gradually spread into quite a large clump. I take divisions regularly (just pull or dig pieces that have bits of root on them, pot them up, and in a few weeks they've filled the pot with roots). It is in a place with excellent drainage, since there are a couple feet of chunky gravel under the soil (from road construction). I've lost other coreopsis varieties, possibly due to wet feet in winter. As you can see from the many photos of this plant, it's very adaptable!
