Bidens bigelovii (Bigelow's beggarticks)[2] is a North American species of flowering plant in the daisy family. It is native to the southwestern and south-central United States (Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado)[3] and to Mexico as far south as Oaxaca.[4]

Bidens bigelovii is an annual herb up to 80 cm (32 inches) tall. It sometimes produces only one flower head at a time, sometimes several, with both yellow disc florets and white ray florets. The species grows along streambanks and in other wet sites.[5]
