Lance Leaf Coreopsis (Coreopsis lanceolata)

Lance-Leaf Coreopsis is an herbaceous perennial found in continental America and Eastern Asia, with C. lanceolata most commonly found in Korea (Kim et al., 2019). C. lanceolata is found to have antioxidant (Tanimoto et al., 2009), antiallergic (Shao et al., 2013), antibacterial (Shao et al., 2013), and antileukemic (Pardede et al., 2016) properties. One study indicates that C. lanceolata may have promise as a treatment against human colon cancer cells (Kim et al., 2019).
