Monday 15 May 2017 β€’ Lantana looks pretty BUT in Australia it "is a Weed of National Significance. It is regarded as one of the worst weeds in Australia because of its invasiveness, potential for spread, and economic and environmental impacts." Continued...

"Lantana forms dense, impenetrable thickets that take over native bushland and pastures on the east coast of Australia. It competes for resources with, and reduces the productivity of, pastures and forestry plantations. It adds fuel to fires, and is toxic to stock." www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/invasive/weeds/publications/guidelines/wons/pubs/l-camara.pdf #lantana #weed #invasiveweed #selfseeds #backgardenbc

It's not invasive here generally s our winters are too harsh. My BIL has one in his garden which grew to about 4ft and looked stunning, it didn't self set at all though.

It's certainly a pretty flower!! But is an absolute monster in the subtropical environment here. Develops into huge, impregnable thickets... πŸ˜• @pelly @juliesgarden @sikoma @keely @christineb @sunnyray
