An interesting Coreopsis fromTom Kelley

What is the lance/sword leafed plant located in the cataract bog at Eva Chandler Preserve in SC?

Hi Tom,

I didn’t know this one, so I referred your picture to Dr. Bert Pittman in Columbia, who, as it turns out, has been working on this plant.  He told me that it is a Coreopsis in the section Eublepharis, and is most likely Coreopsis gladiata.  I love this nature preserve and that is a beautiful picture!

And thanks to Bert!
