New to our Wildflower Garden this year is Bidens aristosa commonly called bur-marigold or tickseed sunflower.  It blooms from late summer until frost.  It is a native plant which attracts butterflies.  Bidens are used in the NCDOT Wildflower Program.  You may see them blooming now along the highways.
