Also known as Crown Tickseed, this charming yellow wildflower features a ring of deep red within the petals. Very easy to grow and great for wildflower mixes and planters.
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.
