The giant coreopsis are really struggling

The Point Dume headlands used to turn gold in February, the thousands of giant coreopsis plants a blaze of blooms. Then came a decade of drought-fueled attrition with fewer and fewer flowers each year. Despite decent rainfall last winter, it seems the damage is done. A sparse bloom this year, the living plants saving their energy, the dead ones an elegy to times past.
