I'm looking for help with the yellow flowers. They're kind of shrub-like and attract bees and butterflies in droves. They also spread every year, taking up more and more precious real estate in this sunny flower bed, so I'm going to have to cut some of them back next spring. They bloom for weeks throughout the summer.
A friend told me they were coreopsis, but... I thought tickseed was coreopsis.
|Tickseed, aka coreopsis.|
Is she right? Are these little yellow flowers another type of coreopsis? Has anyone else made PW's cowboy quiche?
Sorry. I made the quiche last night and still have it on the brain. It's always fun when a new recipe is a hit with the whole family. It was a little salty, but I can easily amend that, and it was super duper easy.
Back to flowers.
I haven't been able to find anyone who knows what these are:
The plant itself is maybe a foot high, and I actually kept mowing over it the first couple summers we were here. It was mostly in the grass, not quite in the flower bed, but I've built the beds out enough now that it's not in danger of being cut anymore.
It blooms in mid-summer (now), the flowers are... I don't know, maybe double the size of a quarter, and a pale pink, not quite as purple as they appear in the photo.
Any ideas? Anyone?
