Florida's tickseed

Tickseed (Coreopsis levenworthii) is Florida's State Wildflower.

 

I have planted two varieties of Coreopsis in my garden, one of which is very similar to this Coreopsis species. It will reseed itself for next year's "crop", but the seed heads attract Goldfinches that put on a show each evening as they voraciously devour the fresh seeds.
