|Coreopsis lanceolata 'Sterntaler'|
The plant produces yellow flowers in late summer.
Lance-leaved coreopsis is commonly grown as an ornamental plant in gardens.
As an invasive plant
Introduced to Japan as an ornamental species and later used extensively in greenification projects, particularly along river banks and railways, Coreopsis lanceolata is now known to be outcompeting native plantlife and has since 2006 been labeled an invasive species by the Invasive Alien Species Act. The cultivation, transplantation, sale, or purchase of Coreopsis lanceolata is now prohibited and the plant has become the subject of a nationwide destruction campaign, even earning a spot on the Ecological Society of Japan's 100 Worst Invasive Species list.
