The Coreopsis verticillata is a hardy, perennial, herbaceous plant, a native of North-America; producing its blossoms, which are uncommonly shewy, from July to October, and is readily propagated by parting its roots in Autumn.
It grows to a great height, and is therefore rather adapted to the shrubbery than the flower-garden.
Clayton remarks, that the petals, though of a yellow colour, are used by the inhabitants to dye cloth red.
