Coreopsis (Tickseed)

July 5, 2010 at 3:59 pm (garden) (, )

This is one of the plants in my front garden and it came from a friend of mine. Seems to love the hot sun and low water of my front yard. Mostly I am throwing this up on my blog so I remember what it is. It looks like there are a number of different colors according to this website, so I might go look for some more. Gotta say I don’t love the name.

    I like the name coreopsis. Maybe not the tickseed.

    Coreopsis was one of my favorite perennials while working at the Burr Farm. The flowers are so bright and sunny!

    Tickseed *is* an unfortunate name.
