I thought this drought tolerant 8 inch high seemingly annual in my zone 8 area was a coreopsis but can't find the variety if it is one. Can anyone help me ID this?
SOLVED: SOLVED: Thought was coreopsis moonbean?
Moonbeam is Coreopsis verticillata the threadleaf coreopsis.
this link offers descriptions of most species found in SE US.
And this link breaks down species by where they grow. Perhaps this will help.
Could it possibly be a species of Biden?

Thank you Sally for rattling the rusty sieve I call a brain. My Melampodium is pretty well protected from frost here and manages to hang on through the winter most years, and reseeds happily.
Thanks so much for the ID. It is much appreciated.
