Can anyone help me identify this flower? The leaves are fern-like and the seed looks similar to marigold.

Perhaps coreopsis?

RE: Help identifying

I don't know. It's a wild flower and grows to be about 3' tall. I looked at the Georgia wild flower website and saw some very similar flowers but the leaves were different. My son-in-law grabbed some seed last fall while deer hunting and we planted them. Both his and mine came up and were just beautiful before the cold got them.

Looks like Cosmos sulphureus.

Here is a link that might be useful: Cosmos
