This bright annual, also known as Dye Flower, was once used by Native Americans for making yellow and orange dyes. The common name “tickseed” comes from the resemblance of the seeds to that particular bug; the genus name Coreopsis, derived from the Greek “koris,” makes a similar reference to bedbugs. Hardiness and love of dry soil make the flowers in this family especially valuable to citizens of the state of Florida, who appointed Coreopsis as their official state wildflower in 1991.
