Coreopsis has been growing for decades here in the Garden. 
It seeds so readily that we tend to ignore the seeds and 
just dig up seedlings. Although it 'grows like a weed' for 
us, it is not necessarily a nice garden plant. It must be in 
well drained soil and then kept near  bone dry in summer and 
probably doesn't tolerate frost. My wife objects to having a 
dead looking plant in the yard for much of the year.
