Coreopsis auriculata (commonly known as lobed tickseed or mouse-ear tickseed) is a North American plant species of the sunflower family. Their daisy-like flowers range in colors from bright yellow and orange to pink and red.
Coreopsis auriculata is a perennial growing from 10–30 cm (4-12 in) tall and sometimes to 60 cm (24 in). Pants with rounded yellow flower heads bloom in spring and early summer. Flower heads are produced on the ends of 8 to 25 cm long peduncles, the heads have 9–12 mm long phyllaries that are lance-deltate to lance-ovate. The ray florets laminae are yellow and 15–20+ mm long. An orange to red/orange dye produced from the flowers and stems has been used in the past. Plants are found growing along roadsides and in openings in woods with mixed hardwood trees and pine barrens especially with calcareous soils in the south eastern USA.
