About plant names...

Lantana is native to Mexico, parts of the Caribbean, Central America, Venezuela, and Colombia. It has been introduced as an ornamental plant to many other tropical and subtropical areas of the world, where it has become naturalized and, often, invasive.

Plants: Evergreen shrubs, 3-4' (91-121 cm) high (rarely up to 6' (1.8 m)) and 12-36" (30-91 cm) around, able to grow higher still by clambering over other plants.

Leaves: opposite, 2-5" (5-12 cm) × 1-2" (2.5-5 cm), rough-surfaced, ovate, with crenate edges. Stems and leaves are hairy. When crushed, they emit an unpleasant odor, likened, among other undesirable odors, to cat urine.

Flowers: Flowers form hemispherical umbels 1-2" (2.5-5 cm) in size. Each umbel is composed of flowers that are ¼-⅜" (6.3-9.5 mm) around, 5-petaled, held in neat, crowded, undeniably beautiful arrays. Making them even more attractive is their spectrum of colors, ranging from whites to yellows to pinks to oranges to reds to purples, mixed within even single umbels and changing in color as they age. They bloom from July to first frost, nearly continuously in frost-free areas.

Fruits: Fruits are purple-black drupes (berries), ~³/₁₆" (5-6 mm) in size.

Edibility: Poisonous Skull & Crossbones Foliage is poisonous to people, as well as to grazing animals. It contains alkaloids, called pentacyclic triterpenoids, that cause liver damage and photosensitivity. Berries are edible when ripe; poisonous when unripe.
