Dyer’s Coreopsis (Coreopsis tinctoria) is a North American native plant, found wild in the Great Plain and Central US but now naturalized throughout the US and Canada. It is an easy to grow annual dye flower and was also used in herbal medicine to help with digestive upsets and other ailments. Coreopsis is also called golden tickseed and calliopsis.
We like to use the flowers to dye a pretty shade of bronzy orange, and it also yields a more reddish shade with a pinch of soda ash added to the bath.
Coreopsis dyes protein fibers best and yields lighter shades on cellulose fibers.
