These beautiful odd flowers caught my eye when I was walking around the hood one day. The strange beautiful mixture of colors caught my attention.
Lantana is it’s name, according to my PlantSnap app. It’s native to the American tropics and Africa but has been introduced in places like Europe, Southeast Asia and Australia.
Despite it’s beauty, it can be an invasive species as it tends to drown out many other plants and is also toxic to livestock animals and cats.
