Beautiful Flowers 5

Lantana

It is a fragile flower and grows in a bunch, looking like a bouquet with orange, red and yellow flowers. With their yellow and pink petals they easily attract butterflies and other insects seeking nectar. The shrub can grow quite large and the color of the petals changes as the plant ages.

That were some beautiful flowers, but the list does not end here. Others in the list include Bleeding Heart, Blue Bells, Lily of the Valley, Black Eyed Susan and Oriental poppy.

So long

  16. Here in Australia lantana is a noxious weed. Real bad, takes over everything, you end up with huge patches of lantana killing all the native plants. Probably beautiful in its native habitat, but to me, I hate the stuff! A real pain in the ass to get rid of too because it will usually have multiple root systems from different parts of the plant.
