Day 110: Coreopsis

“Coreopsis are Native American prairie and woodland plants. Their ruggedness and profuse blooms have made them popular with plant breeders and there are over 100 different species available, although not all are perennial plants. Low maintenance, drought tolerant and long blooming, Coreopsis are work horses in a sunny flower border. Their common name, “tickseed”, is supposedly for the seeds resemblance to ticks. That doesn’t stop the birds from devouring them, if you leave the seed heads on during the winter. Goldfinches, in particular, enjoy Coreopsis seeds.” (Source)
