Coreopsis

Coreopsis is one of the easiest flowers to save the seeds from. It is a just a matter of getting the seed heads before the birds pick them clean! There is really only a few steps needed to save Coreopsis seeds, and I will show you the process with pictures below. Although just about all Coreopsis are great at self-seeding, saving seed from Coreopsis is a particularly smart thing to do. It is the cheapest way to get more plants for free, without having to transplant young seedlings to new areas. Coreopsis flowers are members of the sunflower family. They look a lot like a daisy. Sometimes called "Tickseed" or "Calliopsis", this attractive plant has yellow, gold, red, maroon, or a combination of these colors ,on sturdy stalks that grow from 1 1/2' to 4' tall. While most Coreopsis are perennials, there are a few annual varieties. It is native to prairies and dry plains.Plant Lance-Leaf Coreopsis for a beautiful array of bright yellow flowers! The plant grows up to 3 feet high with a single bloom on each erect stem.

This herbaceous perennial is clump forming with short rhizomes. Some other names for this species include Sand Coreopsis, Longstalk Coreopsis, Coreopsis crassifolia, Coreopsis heterogyna, and Lanceleaf Tickseed. Just look at the seeds and you will see where the name Tickseed comes from! But here at Joyful Butterfly, we will stick with the name Lance-leaf.Shortly after the flowers have been pollinated the flower petals will fall and leave behind green 'buttons' where the seeds are forming. If you would prefer more blooms than seeds, deadhead the blooms by pulling off the spent flowers heads. Otherwise the seeds will begin to develop and soon the seed head will open up and out will spill the seeds. Coreopsis flowers and seed heads will grow at the same time on plants. So there is no "right" time of the year to harvest seeds. Collect your seeds are they develop on the plant. Don't wait until it has stopped blooming. (Source:mrbrownthumb.blogspot.com)
