Synonym: Coreopsis crassifolia
An occasional wildflower found mostly in sandhills, glades and disturbed sites throughout the Florida panhandle east into Suwannee County, plus St. Johns, Volusia and Lake Counties. The range extends throughout most of the United States except for the Rocky Mountain states and the upper midwest. Also found in British Columbia and Ontario.
Both the ray and disk portion of the flowers are yellow, with the ray florets having three to five shallow lobes at the tip. Leaves are opposite, lanceolate to elliptic, sometimes with one or two lobes at the base and mostly on the lower portion of the stem.
