T is for Tickseed
If I were in charge of naming plants,
I would call this pretty wildflower Sun Ray or maybe Sunny Days.
Unfortunately, it was named for the size and shape of its seeds.
Native to North, Central, and South America, Tickseed's official name is Coreopsis.
The pink flowers in the background are Sweet William Dianthus.
There are more than 100 named species of Tickseed.
These came from a packet of mixed wildflower seeds so
I do not know exactly which Tickseed they are.
Hope you are having a bright, sunny day!
