Lantana is a dense bush which scrambles over roadsides, nature reserves and neglected gardens, especially in areas close to the sea. The bush usually grows to about 2-4 metres wide, has square stems, with oval shaped leaves which give off an unpleasant smell when crushed. The flower heads are made up of about 20 smaller flowers ranging from white, cream, pink, purple, yellow and orange. Lantana spreads by layering (roots form where branches touch the ground) and by seed, especially from seed digested by animals.
