|Lore||Coreopsis is a name translated from the Greek for 'bug-like' due to the resemblance of the seed to wood ticks. In addition to being deer resistant, several species of Coreopsis (including C. grandiflora) are rabbit resistant, although very young plants and new seedlings may need to be protected in heavily grazed areas.|
