The leaves only grow at the top of a bare trunk which give this plant a cactus-like look. Also similar to cactus, Coreopsis Gigantea is very drought tolerant and should not be over watered.

Daisy-like flowers grew out of the crown of the plant. The flowers were roughly 3 inches (7.5 cm) in diameter. This plant is native to the southern California coast, the Channel Islands, and parts of Baja.
