I love coreposis- all the species as well as the tinctoria  give a rich yellow  dye  but -and this  is the reason I love it-  with  ammonia it goes a wonderful burnt orange  almost a red. Unlike most yellows which give  a green with iron coreopsis gives a burnt umber brown.  Like most yellows the lightfastness is medium so that after one month in a south facing windnow there is a slight loss of colour.
