Another coreopsis question

My coreopsis fill out to a huge full bush of great yellow flowers this year and I want to know if I should cut off the dead blooms. Will it bloom again and for how long?

According to these articles, Coreopsis definitely benefits from deadheading. :)

coreopsis

Yes, keep it deadheaded and your coreopsis should keep blooming pretty much all season. Great plant!
