Are these Coreopsis tinctoria, Plains Coreopsis? I wintersowed some this year and just transplanted from jugs into the garden a few days ago.

Gorgeous Cinda! Sorry I know nothing about Coreopsis except that I keep trying to grow some from seed with fairly poor luck!

These were WS last year and come up on their own this year, I would be glad to save some seed and you can give them a try?

Cinda - were you successful in transplanting your clumps of the dwarf red coreopsis? I had some regular yellow ones in the past, but I really like your red ones. I am replacing most of the lawn in my front yard, and that looks like a perfect candidate for that area. Are they drought-tolerant?

Yes, they did transplant OK the transplanted ones stayed shorter , but that happens with most of the annuals I transplant.
As for drought -tolerant I can not say we have had more than normal rain this summer , however I do not water them, so maybe.
I would be glad to send some seeds your way/ of course some may have yellow edges like in the picture. I only collect seeds from the reds but the others always seem to make a show.

I believe they are considered a good choice for dry areas. I'm not sure if they grow and bloom well during dry spells, or if its just that they grow so quickly from seed that they reach blooming size while spring moisture is still around.

I would be interested in knowing if they self-seed (and if it has already been mentioned, sorry, I missed it!). Coreopsis grows wild around here, but the one perennial I have is such a short bloomer it drives me nuts.
In the end, only kindness matters.

Science is not the answer, it is the question.

From just the flower they look quite similar, but the leaves are very different and most telling the seed heads are very different.
Dark here now but I will try to get a couple pictures tomorrow.
