Lantana



I guess many people I know do not like this flower, they find this one smelly. Others like me, find this one fragrant - well, it seems like different people smell things differently.

I love this colourful flowers, especially when the flower first start to bloom and continue to unfurl layers of each centre portions of blooms. I really wanted to collect all the varieties of different shades and colours. My only problem is this one only bloom in sunny areas.

I had passed these to my mother in law, but lately I found that lack of care and the yellow one died. The red one is quite leggy and badly needed pruning. It had become very bushy and look very invasive. Well, I guess those are the glory days when these flowers are on my care.

  2. Alfredo - Can't really tell. Smells a little like marigold + orangey and a (+/-) sandalwood smell.
