Route 66 coreopsis

We purchased 6 this spring and are very pleased. We also discovered that a small plant, 6 to 8 inches tall,that came up last year and again this year must be a native or original since it has the same foliage and tiny yellow flowers. We have no idea where it came from and we did not have any route 66 coreopsis.
