Lantana is a very common plant in Texas landscapes. Here is another view showing the foliage. Lantana is considered a weed in New Zealand and in regions of the Pacific. The leaves are poisonous to livestock and humans but the plant attracts butterflies and birds. A new development to the north has congested traffic on our Farm and Market Road. Fittingly, the development is named after this weed.
