These vivid, yellow flowers almost glow in the sunlight, against their dark green foliage. They are easy to grow and make a fantastic choice for a prairie planting, a butterfly garden, or even as cut flowers.
This wildflower's common name of "tickseed" comes from the resemblance of the seeds to that particular bug; the genus name Coreopsis, derived from the Greek "koris," makes a similar reference to bedbugs. Hardiness and love of dry soil make the flowers in this family especially valuable to citizens of the state of Florida, who appointed Coreopsis as their official state wildflower in 1991.
