Please try our next iteration of the Michigan Flora Online here. Beginning on February 1, 2023, michiganflora.net will point to this new site.

The new site offers several benefits over the existing website, including real coordinate mapping, giving a clearer view of the density of documentation as well as more precision about plant distributions and their link to landforms. We will also have the ability to update species pages more regularly, both in terms of new collections and as more existing Michigan specimens are georeferenced. In addition, we have a better photo display, and offer indented keys.

Coreopsis grandiflora Hogg
Common Name: LARGE-FLOWERED COREOPSIS
Coefficient of Conservatism: *
Coefficient of Wetness: 5
Wetness Index: UPL
Physiognomy: Ad P-Forb

Native in the southeastern United States, commonly cultivated and locally established as an escape from cultivation along railroads and roadsides, in fields, sandy banks, and clearings. First collected in 1925 in Wayne Co.

Not always easily distinguished from C. lanceolata. Both have achenes that may be granular-papillose on the surface and that usually have a large callus at each end on the inner (concave) face. Some of the variability may represent hybridization with C. lanceolata.
