Flower: Lantana


This is a photo of Lantana flower that I took when I was visiting my grandparents grave last week. I think Lantana is more of a wild flower as it grows in the bushes. The colors attracted me and the fact that a cluster of the flower is made up of few small flowers amazed me. The outer circle has petals while the inner ones are more like ribbons. Did you noticed that? This flower reminds me so much of synchronised swimming routine. Indeed an amazing flower despite its stinky smell. The leaves are somewhat poisonous to most animals, while their berries are edible when ripe though like many fruit are mildly poisonous if eaten while still green. I've tasted them berries, was sweet and nice!
