Coreopsis from Mary, SC

What is this sunflower type flower blooming now in dry, sandy soil, sometimes seen in ditches?


Hi Mary,

this is a species of Coreopsis, or tickseed. Not sure which one, there are several possibilities. A good plant manual  should give you the name.  The leaves will make it easy to identify.
