I love lantana :-) There are varieties here that don't set seeds and these are perfectly fine to grow. #10362910

Bobby, Ann, Tiia, and Barbara, thanks very much for commenting. I appreciate it.

It is a pretty weed though. Even though it does take over vast tracts of land. A pretty capture. #10362952

Sort of one mans trash is another mans treasure thing. I am not sure why they feel that way as these are such gorgeous flowers and attract the butterflies. I love the colors and you really got close in so we can see each little bloom that makes up the ball. Gorgeous work dear friend. Have a wonderful day. #10362988

I take a break for a few days - and I miss so many beautiful images :)
I never seem to get a brake during the day but right now Leif is doing the dishes and I wanted to see what's going on in your gallery :)
Such lovely colors in this delightful image, Mary. #10363766

Marvelous color and clarity Mary! Unfortunately this plant grows like wildfire here, and is very difficult to eradicate from our National Parks and farms! #10364025

Ellen Hodges level-deluxe October 10, 2012

Absolutely gorgeous colors and details, Mary! Butterflies love them, that's for sure! #10364068

This is for my friends Down Under, many of whom consider lantanas to be more pests than pretty flowers. :D
