To: "J.M. Garg" <jmg...@gmail.com>


Dear Mr Garg,


I needed ur expert guidance on this flower of the lantana that I have attached. It is orange in colour and is in full bloom in the lower shiwaliks.

Could u tell me whether this orange colour is rare as compared to the standard yellow/pinkish flowers?

Could u tell me in general about the lantana weed?


Regards,

Vikram.

Dear Friends,
This not rare at all. It is seen everywhere in the south. I have
plenty of it along my fencing and am struggling to get rid of the
young plants that sprout in the farm. The birds are fond of its fruit
and it grows without any problem wherever it is dropped.
Regards
Yazdy.

Dear all: Lantana is nothing new to India..... agree...
and this color is neither... I have seen this quite often in western
India along roadsides, as weeds.... never photographed it (ha ha)
because its a "weed". I have yellow in my garden here...very hardy .
and pinkish mauve in a hanging basket.. that vareity is not so
hardy..., Usha di.

yes there are varieties of colours in flowering. First I thought this could be due to the the altitude variation, but later on it was not true. experts could throw light on this.

During student life I was not aware of existence of orange flowered Lantana. I met him during College Tour to Ooty. Later I observed it many times specially on hills. Orange flowered Lantana is commonly planted in gardens due to its color.

Orange flowered Lantana is used as medicine along with other Lantana.
