I was out taking some photos yesterday of wildflowers on my property from seed I had sown. Among the seeds was Coreopsis tinctoria - Plains coreopsis. Photos of bloom & leaves below:

Thumb of 2014-06-22/flaflwrgrl/9edeb4

I had to hold the stem/leaves to get a photo b/c the leaves are so fine & needle like. I am positive these are the leaves as the bloom was atop the stem.

Now today, I go into the db, where I know I had previously loaded photos of Coreopsis tinctoria - Plains coreopsis
Plains Coreopsis (Coreopsis tinctoria)

I notice that in some of the photos, particularly the ones showing the leaves, they are different looking. I recall taking those photos clearly & am positive those are the leaves belonging to the blooms. I also found other photos which demonstrate these same leaves that are not fine & needle like. Mine & the others:







So now I'm really confused. Which leaves are correct? I want to make it right in the db but need help figuring this out. I looked online & couldn't really come up with any clear photos or definitions of the leaves.

EDIT NOTE: Since I requested removal of the photos from the data base; that also means they are removed in this post as they in essence, no longer exist.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

The leaves on yours are similar to those of Coreopsis auriculata but the flower doesn't have the red blotches. I've been searching for one which matches, no luck so far.

The Plains Coreopsis (tinctoria) that I have growing here in SC looks more or less identical to yours, with the same blooms and thin/fine foliage. Also, there are a lot of photos online that show Plains Coreopsis (same color bloom) with foliage like the photos you posted...

check out http://animpartationofcolor.blogspot.com/2011/10/plains-core... -- it shows an entire plant layed over on it's side and the foliage is clearly the same as in the picture you posted.

and also this online seed catalogue -- http://www.lifeseedcompany.com/product/coreopsis-plains

Not sure why it looks so different in the DB pics... very interesting...

Thank you Janet & Meghan! I'll remove the photos of leaves that I had previously posted & have notified TexasPlumeria87.
