Lantana Camara, native to South Texas and tropical regions of Central and South America, is  beautifully unique with its mixture of pink and yellow blooms.

Although stunning when flowering, it has become a destructive, invasive species in many areas. 

“Nothing is all bad. There are very beautiful flowers in the desert amidst the spikes and thorns. Just don’t let them take over. In the garden of love there is little room for prickly things.”
