 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!  I have some beauties coming up in the next few weeks.  This is one that I like a lot and grow, or try to grow, in my gardens.  This is Coreopsis, also known as Tickseed, which are in the Asteracea Family.  They are drought hardy and native in my area.  I have difficulty getting them to return.  I'll see how my newest plant does this year.  I captured these lovely ones out on a walk near my home.


  1. There is a lot of Coreopsis growing on the Bruce Peninsula (Lake Huron) which is essentially one big rock of limestone. I'll have to dig out my slides of it as I didn't think it looked quite like your variety here. Yours seems, from memory, to have more detail.

    1. I bet that was lovely. There are different types of Coreopsis, there is a fluffier looking version that grows here as well.

  2. Very nice, Shelly. The color pop of the flowers is very nice.
