About Bidens: These two types of Bidens- also known as Spanish needle and Beggar’s Tick are considered invasive plants. Both species have seeds that can easily catch on your clothing or your pet’s fur~ an excellent way to get your attention and to move around, seeding other areas. We wildcraft Bidens frondosa locally at the end of the summer, when the tall plants with their golden flowers reach for the sun. The Bidens pilosa is gathered in clean, wild places in Florida and cool-shipped overnight to us. We then process the fresh green leaves and lovely white flowers. One of our team grew this plant in her zone 3 garden last year and it grew beautifully! These are survivor plants for which we are quite grateful.
