Around this time of the year there are always billowing clouds of tickseed, Coreopsis tinctoria, in my garden. Their pretty little yellow and rusty red seed heads float on tall wiry stems. Once in a while a sport appears. This year it is this little beauty. It almost looks as though someone has taken a paintbrush and dusted the flower with gold dust.
There is an even darker one here.
Another one has a more prominent inner circle of rusty red.
Here one with a narrow circle of rusty red. You just never know what will show up.
And a lemon yellow one with a peppered center.
Or where they will show up. This one in a planter on the wall. I have allowed it to stay because it acts as my watering indicator. When it droops I know it is time to water.
But mostly they are just show up in the garden as showy clusters like this.
