Coreopsis is a genus of flowering plants with about 75 - 80 species native to North, Central, and South America. The showy, daisy-like flowers are usually yellow with a toothed tip, but some species also have red along with the yellow. The colorful blooms do not have much of a fragrant scent, but the foliage has an anise-like smell. It gets one of its alternate names "Tickseed" from its tiny round seeds that resemble ticks, which attracts birds and other wildlife looking for food during the fall and winter.
