Official Name:  Coreopsis  is a genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. Common names include calliopsis and tickseed, a name shared with various other plants.

General description: These plants range from 46–120 cm (18–47 in) in height. A common name for Coreopsis is Tickseed.The flowers are usually yellow with a toothed tip. They are also yellow-and red bicolor.The flat fruits are small and dry and look like bugs. Many of its species are cultivated. The 75 to 80 Coreopsis species are native to NorthCentral, and South America. They have showy flower heads with involucral bracts in two distinct series of eight each, the outer being commonly connate at the base. The name Coreopsis is derived from the Greek words κόρις (koris), meaning "bedbug", and ὄψις (opsis), meaning "view", referring to the shape of the achene.

How to grow: It is equally easy to learn how to grow coreopsis. Simply seed a prepared area of un-amended soil in spring in a full sun location. Seeds of coreopsis plants need light to germinate, so cover lightly with soil or perlite or simply press seeds into moist soil. Keep the seeds of coreopsis plants watered until germination, usually within 21 days. Care of coreopsis may include misting the seeds for moisture. Sowing plants in succession will allow for an abundance of growing coreopsis. Coreopsis plants may also be started from cuttings from spring to mid-summer.

BenefitsCoreopsis species are used as nectar and pollen for insects.The species is known to specifically provide food to caterpillars of some Lepidoptera species including Coleophora acamtopappi. The sunny, summer blooming, daisy-like flowers are popular in gardens to attract butterflies.
