What's this plant?

I've just picked up a couple of petunias from my local shop and was drawn to this little thing, which I've bought to put in one of my pots. Unfortunately the shopkeeper had no idea, he normally sells alcohol not bedding plants!
Can someone ID it pretty please?

    Gazania - or something of that ilk perhaps?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Bidens I think.
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    I thought (or rather the OH thought) it might be a coreopsis but the leaves dont really match. Shall have to look at gazania :)

    It’s a Bidens, hanging basket plant.

    I think the leaves are wrong for gazania. There’s a name of another possibility nagging but it won’t come to me...begins with a B perhaps? 

    Sorry if this isn’t particularly useful!

    I would bow to the others' superior knowledge ! 
    I don't really 'do' annuals other than sweet peas.  ;)
