Re: OT: mystery flower



As in Tickseed Coreopsis. I just read that the seeds stick to you like ticks, hence the name.

Not an expert, but it looks like a single coreopsis to me.  It comes in a double that I've grown.  Guess that isn't really a wild flower through.  Unless it's the native from which the newer ones were bred.  I've heard them called tic flower I think.

Subject: [iris-photos] OT: mystery flower

Here I am displaying my ignorance of wildflowers - my housemate was a bit slow to plant her raised bed in the front yard, so after getting tired of looking at bare dirt, I decided to plant some wildflowers (a "beneficial bug mix" from Gurney's). Unfortunately, this one wasn't listed on the seed packet, but I bet the botanical experts on iris-photos know what it is :-)
