lantana ablaze (Lantana camara (Lantana))

October past, but still blooming...

It has such pretty flowers ... over here I'm afraid it's regarded as a highly noxious weed as it takes over vast areas of our bushland.

Yes, it takes over in a hurry, but I love it, and it attracts the butterflies like magnets - doesn't smell to pretty though!

No you're right about the smell. The lantana has taken over huge spots of the bushland that surrounds our property - the biggest clump of it is now around 2 metres high and 4 metres wide. My poor hubbie tried in vain to get rid of some of the big clumps when we first moved out here ... they just came back!
