When I was a child, this was in almost every yard. It is the Old Fashioned Lantana. It has a smell, not a bad smell but a distinct smell, it is not a hybrid.
This was in almost every yard, along with the other required plants and trees, fig trees, Mimosa trees, Rose of Sharon and of course there had to be a Pomegranate tree.
If I close my eyes when I inhale the fragrance, I am transported back to my childhood. It is a warm summer afternoon and I am in my Gran's yard. The memory comes with a smile!
I like the delicate shades of pink and yellow that this bush offers.
The blooms will be gone soon.
This lovely plant will sleep for winter and emerge again next summer.
This plant must have been here for years, I am happy that it is still here.
This is a flower predator! Fortunately for the lantana, it is in a place safe from the jaws of the plant predator. How can such a sweet face be a plant predator?
