Lantana

Here's a shot of Lantana camara. It's much appreciated for its color variation, both between individuals and within flower clusters. White, yellow, orange, red or purple, it doesn't seem to care how it comes out. In tropics, it's not so much appreciated when it leeches chemicals into its surroundings and prevents germination of native seeds. And it's kind of smelly and toxic. But if you plant it in northern gardens don't worry. Frost will control it.
