WHAT FLORIDA NATIVE PLANT IS BLOOMING TODAY?™:  TICKSEED (Coreopsis spp.)

Can you see the visiting pollinator on this State Wildflower of Florida?

In 1991, the genus Coreopsis was designated Florida’s official wildflower, thanks to the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. The 15 Coreopsis species found in Florida are either yellow or pink (Coreopsis nudata).
