Taxonomic Notes:For many years this species was confused with Coreopsis verticillata L., a species of the Atlantic Coastal Plain. Coreopsis pulchra has brownish disc flowers while C. verticillata produces greenish-yellow ones. All references of C. verticillata in Alabama so far have turned out to be C. pulchra thus warranting the exclusion of C. verticillata from the Alabama Plant Atlas. -BK
Status:Native, S2 (State Rank), G2 (Global Rank)
References:Smith, E.B. 1976. A biosystematic survey of Coreopsis in Eastern United States and Canada. Sida 6: 123-215.
