This lovely wildflower has been named for Melines Conkling Leavenworth (1796-1862), a botanist who collected this specimen from his native Florida as well as many others throughout the southeastern United States. Its common name of “tickseed” comes from the resemblance of the seeds to that particular bug. 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.
