Found this blooming with amaranthus and would like an ID for this little white flower on stems reaching 4' tall. Thank you.

Reminds me of Bidens, maybe this one: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/54527/

Thanks, Mike. It does appear to be Bidens. Only three reports of it other than Florida and none up here on Long Island, except for our garden and I just entered it.

Mighta been in a seed mix.

Hadn't thought of that, Mike. Thanks. We did grow three types of amaranthus and the cockscomb from seed so it's a strong possibility.

Keaau, HI

Yes, Bidens alba.
