Dyer's Coreopsis

Certified Organic Seed

Coreopsis tinctoria

Highly-pigmented blooms that can be used for dyeing.

This easy-to-grow North American native produces a plethora of cadmium red blossoms, sometimes ringed with yellow. Our strain has a higher proportion of solid red blooms than most. Dyer’s is wonderful as an ornamental alone, but, as the name suggests, the flowers can also be used dried or fresh to create rich gold, rust, and sienna textile dyes.
