Coreopsis tinctoria

The Flowers of India website identifies this as the Golden Coreopsis (Coreopsis tinctoria). It is a native of North America. Beautiful isn't it?!

That is the gaillardia, or Arizona painted daisy. It is supposed to be a perennial here, but I did not find that to be true in my garden.

think it is the golden coreopsis... gaillardia, as shown in the flowers of india website (http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Gaillardia%20Fanfare.html) looks quite different.. i think i did see it as well at lalbagh.. i'll post a picture soon.
