Coreopsis auriculata 'Zamphir'

Coreopsis auriculata 'Zamphir'
ear-leaved tickseed

Common name ear-leaved tickseed
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-9)
Flowers yellow (late spring-summer)
Size 12-18"
Light sun
Seed ripensmid-November

Lower-growing coreopsis. The ray flowers start as eight tubes, distinctly arranged around the central disc, but then open up flat, to make a more traditionally shaped flat coreopsis daisy. Supposedly spreads slowly to form a mat and suitable as a front-of-border groundcover. That would suit us just fine.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
