    It looks like an annual chrysanthemum. Save seeds for next year.

    It looks like a coreopsis (tickseed) to me  :)

    Definitely Coreopsis, grows here and self seeds.    
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • If it is Coreopsis, would it be growing as a climbing plant? or it that the sign of a neglected garden? Also, what should he do with it at this time of the year - is it perennial? Thanks very much for your help with this.

    It may just be a bit leggy - trying to reach better light. They can get tall if the conditions dictate, although that one may simply have seeded in there  :)
    Most are perennial. He doesn't need to do anything with it, unless he wants it in a better position. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
