Coreopsis Palmata

The early blooming Coreopsis Palmata is a prairie flower native to Illinois and much of the Midwest United States. The plant itself attracts and nourishes many insects as well as mammals. These organisms feed on its pollen, nectar, and leaves. This yellow petalled flower grows well in difficult, dry soil, making it perfect for stabilizing soil on dry slopes or beautifying dry meadow patches.
