General Information

The flowers are usually yellow with a toothed tip. They have showy flower heads with involucral bracts in two distinct series of eight each, the outer being commonly connate at the base.
The name Coreopsis is derived from the Greek words κορις (koris), meaning "bedbug," and ὄψις (opsis), meaning "view," referring to the shape of the achene.

Are you sure this isn't Coreopsis grandiflora - Pot of Gold? This one has more petals, tho shaped right...some pics show more, some less. Seems pretty variable!
