This week's Nature in a Minute video features Coreopsis, Florida's State Wildflower. It's also commonly called Tickseed, and there are several different species growing around the state. Look for Coreopsis growing in wet ditches, pinelands and along the roadside. Ever check out vehicle tags while driving down the highway? Keep your eyes peeled for a Florida wildflower license plate – it has Coreopsis on it!
