Am seeking information on What I thought I planted, Dill. It smells like
dill(the foliage), but the flowers are single about 1 in. in diameter and
yellow with a crimson center. Unlike any dill I have seen before. Please
advise. Can post a picture if helpful. Would like to identify, although as
I have already used once in cooking (before flowers appeared) it does not
seem to be harmful at least in small quantities???
NEVER in a group that doesn't have the word .binaries. in its name.
You could post it to alt.binaries.test and then post here the name of
the posting in that group.
Several web sites offer free picture space.

Just curious... before I even look at the pics, why did you "think it
was dill?" I guess what I'm saying is, where'd you get it? Regardless
of what it looks like, if you bought it at a nursery, that's most
likely what it is. If you picked cuttings off the roadside, however,
that's a different story.
Hi, I grow herbs to sell at a local farmers market. As others have said,
this isn't dill of any form.
However, it does look like Coreopsis tinctoria (plains coreopsis). You
might do a google search on this, or go to Park Seed's web site as they sell
it, as compare.
Considering how fast my dill has been bolting lately, I think I'd rather
I have to agree, I have 2 different kinds of dill growing as well, so I
think you are right about ir being coreopsis. No clue where i got the
seeds from, having moved from Southern Cal, to Northern Virginia and taking
my seeds with me. Maybe some got mixed up in the jumble of moving. Thanks
for the ID, it is too bad though, I thought it really added to the sauce I
used it in??? Is it known to be poisonous at all? I did not use a lot of
it but am wondering what would happen if I did. Not really brave enough
to risk it though.
Unless a plant is famously poisonous (Foxglove, Oleander), I don't
think there's anything harmful in sampling it. Most plants we don't
eat aren't harmful -- they just don't taste very good and/or have no
particular nutritional benefits.
