Abstract

Researches methods of establishing Coreopsis lanceolata in a former pasture in Florida. Disturbing the extant vegetation (Paspalum notatum, bahiagrass) with glyphosate prior to seeding resulting in the greatest establishment of C. lanceolata. Seeding C. lanceolata at 600 live seeds per meter squared resulted in high levels of establishment, but only when the bahiagrass was disturbed prior to seeding.
