With the winter that we’ve had, I’m eager to get out in the garden and add some color. I stopped at a local nursery and found this delightful plant, Bidens–Sun Drop. It’s new to me…looks like a Potentilla or daisy or aster. What attracted me was the sunny yellow color.
It’s described as an annual that likes full sun. And, it found a nice home in the front of the house.
But, surely, it’s more than a pretty face, so I put it to work!! I grabbed a few flowers. My expectation was low, maybe some backyard yellow. And, to my surprise…
My favorite coreopsis orange. WAHOO!! So, I went to the source of all information (not t.h.e. oracle, but t.h.e. google) and there’s some indication that this plant is related to the coreopsis. It has a leaf that’s close to Moonbeam c., but a flower that’s like Tickseed c.
Whichever…it’s a new favorite of mine!!
