Apache Beggarticks, Fern-Leaved Beggarticks, Coreopsis ferulifolia, Bidens procera


Long-blooming and carefree, Bidens ferulifolia (Apache Beggarticks) is a vigorous low-growing evergreen perennial, often grown as an annual, boasting a profusion of delicately fragrant, bright yellow daisies, up to 2 in. across (5 cm). Blooming from early summer right through to fall, nearly year round in frost free areas, the five-petaled blossoms are carried on wiry stems above the bushy foliage of finely dissected dark green foliage. Rich in nectar, the flowers are a good pollen and nectar source for bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects. Tolerant of heat, wind and drought, this fast-growing Southwest U.S. native is an excellent performer. Forming a compact mat of long-lasting bright golden flowers, it is suitable for growing in beds or containers for the decoration of balconies, terraces and patios. Ideal for hanging baskets as it has vigorous, cascading stems.
