Coreopsis/Tickseed

A sign of a St. John's Wort flower is
that it has like a star burst in the middle of the flower center.. not a short one either,
they go out at least to the outter part of the flower..
The one picture/flower you posted,
has short stamens' in the middle..
not bursting out... wink

Here's a picture of a St. John's Wort..
click
This next one looks to me to be a Wild St. John's Wort, it's dark/orangish, rusty colored sorta...

Thanks weezie, but don't think that's it, the leaves in my pic are really thin

I know it's not what you're looking for at this point, but here's a pic of the St John's Wart that's growing on the other side of my road.

That's a good way to describe it, Weezie... "star burst".
It's an awesome blossom!

(I can sure get disappointed with the pics that some of the botanical sites offer! You'd think they'd bother to display clearer **or close-up** pics, or photos of flowers, rather than drawings! How do they expect us to learn anything!) :rolleyes:

THIS place is the BEST place of them all! [Linked Image]

I would agree with the coreopsis - it looks just like the few I have.

THanks everyone, I think I'm going to go with Netty about it being Coreopsis Moonbeam, I think the foilage looks the same. Neko, I think you were extremely close as well! So much for me saying it was Coreopsis, sorry bout that weezie, just goes to show how novice I am at gardening! That sure is a beautiful pic of St.J's W Patty!
