Lanceleaf coreopsis


Explanation:
Coreopsis lanceolata appears to be the scientific name. If you type it in the search field of Yahoo (like I did) or any other search engine, I'm sure you'll get plenty of hits. The two below helped me out. The first has a German explanation, use your "Find" feature (Ctrl + F, usually) to locate "Mädchenauge." The second link has a good picture.

Hope this helps.
