Researches the phenotypic diversity of Coreopsis leavenworthii throughout its geographic distribution in Florida. When grown in a common garden environment, plants from naturally-occurring populations and from commercial seed production demonstrated a substantial amount of phenotypic diversity. Using principal components analysis, populations were grouped into three clusters. Despite the phenotypic differences and clustering of populations, the results of the research suggest that most C. leavenworthii populations can be used statewide.
