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

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.

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.
