When do coreopsis lose their leaves?

manda3(8a DFW Texas)December 31, 2010

After a couple of freezes my 'sundancer' coreopsis is still a cute mound of tear drop leaves. I thought they were deciduous. Do they happen to be evergreen here in Texas or will they lose their leaves later? Just curious.

They are what I call "slow" deciduous. Sometimes it takes nearly all winter for them to lose their leaves. In a mild one, they don't until new growth pushes them off in the spring.
