This perennial, which I think is a Coreopsis came up as a volunteer in my garden this year, and bloomed in late summer and early fall. Can anyone identify it for me. as I'd like to plant more. It was very undemanding, and seems to be able to tolerate wet weather.
It could be a type of coreopsis.
Most of the ones I have seen have toothed edges to the flowers but a few don't. The ones that don't that I have seen have more delicate ferny leaves though - more like daisies.
We have coreopsis growing all up and down the highway here in the mountains and all along the railway. It grows down the bottom of our yard among the rocks in the crevices and it will grow in wet areas as well. If it is a type of coreopsis you wont have to plant more - it will spread by it self.
It is considered a weed here but I love it. The old fashioned one we have here is such a brilliant vibrant yellow it really lifts your spirits when you are walking down the street and you are surrounded by it on each side.
Actually the picture I posted is so poor that it could be taken for anything. I'm having problems uploading and posting photos.
Speaking of weeds, mullein is one of my favorites
Hi Arey. It does look like coreopsis. I have two varieties in my garden. One looks like that, but the flowers are more yellow. The other one, a volunteer has more fern like leaves (as coldgold stated) and is somewhat of a weed as it grows wild around here. Still very yellow in color, but I let it stay. A very prolific growing plant. The seeds spread everywhere.
Very refreshing to see some garden plants now that all of mine are brown, including the lawn. I'm afraid that with the arrival of the black lab, I will no longer have a back yard.
