The butterflies are going crazy for all the flowering lantana 🌸 this seems to be one of their favorite plants in the gardens i care for. This hillside is covered in it and all the butterflies in the air remind me of being in the goleta butterfly preserve 😁 So many different colors available with lantana, and each year new ones come out.These plants are drought tolerant, pollinator friendly, great for erosion control, produces tons of flowers, and many species even produce a beautiful...(1/2)

They even produce edible berries, but make sure they are fully ripe. Unripe berries are green and ripe ones will be black or blue/purple. The good ones kinda taste like red chapulin cherries to me lol. (2/2)

@sherrisgarden most people don't for some reason. Alot of indigenous & natives eat the fruit in past and present😎🤙 i think because the unripe berries can be toxic, but ripe ones are fine. Maybe people got scared
