"Coreopsis tintoria" and "Coreopsis tinctoria" -- Same species maybe?
- The former is not in www.ipni.org (the latter is), and a Google search suggests that it is a "viral misspelling". I've removed it.--Curtis Clark 02:23, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
tickseed stunning to bumble bees
Has anyone else noticed that bbees are stunned nearly unconcious, by the tickseed flower? I noticed this phenonmenon in my own garden on the north shore of Long Island in July. I have attached pictures in the hopes of finding an answer to this riddle. It seems to act like an opiate on the bees. I wonder if anyone has noticed this and has an explanation. The bees are so docile under the influence of this coreopsis that one can touch their fuzzy underbelly without any reaction on their part what-so-ever. Attached are several photos of the bees hanging on in stunned silence. Please elaborate if you know more about this phenonmenon. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 03:14, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Are Coreopsis perennial?
- Well, the answer is "Annuals, perennials, subshrubs, or shrubs" according to Flora of North America. Probably this means that each species is in one of those 4 categories. I guess it would be worth adding to the article, although it would be more informative if the answer were a little more definitive than "it depends which species" and perhaps even "it depends on how broadly you define Coreopsis".

A family member recently passed away. He had no will, so we went and took a few things to remember him by. I chose a box of seeds and nuts, and found a jar marked coreopsis 2009. It's in a medical jar, so I assume it was purchased for medicinal purposes. Could you tell me what it was used for, and if it's expired (i assume 2009 is in reference to the year).184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:43, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
