Wildflowers: Coreopsis, July 23, 2019

Our World Tuesday and Wildflower Wednesday
Wildflower Wednesday is the 4th Wednesday of each month.

Poinsett County, Arkansas, USA, June 30, 2019
You may know Plains Coreopsis, Coreopsis tinctoria, by one of its other names: Calliopsis, Golden Tickseed, or Garden Tickseed. It is a native North American wildflower that grows well in full sun.

When we went to our family reunion in Arkansas in June, long stretches of highway were bordered with masses of Plains Coreopsis. Absolutely beautiful! A big Thank You to the Arkansas Highway Department!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. ...too often everything along the highway gets mowed here!

  2. So dramatic! Growing up in Texas, we looked forward to similar roadside displays of bluebonnets. Always a happy surprise.

  3. Lovely, Lea! They are nice in the garden too.

  4. Beautiful...I wish we had more wildflowers on our highways.

  5. This is beautiful. I haven't seen it around here tho.

  6. Beautiful highway scene. We have Coreopsis in Texas too and I always like seeing them.


I enjoy your comments!
