Lantana camara / Verbena Family
August 5, 2006
I was surprised to learn this plant is native to Florida since it is often planted as an ornamental. On the pink varieties, the flowers change color after being pollinated. The green, unripe berries contain triterpenes are poisonous to dogs, cats, goats, sheep, cattle, and humans. Lantana can cause photosensitivity in white goats.
