Description

A trailing or mat-forming evergreen shrub growing to a height of two to four metres, it bears heads of pink or orange posy-like flowers, each with a yellow eye. A native to the Americas, it is considered a noxious weed in northern Australia  , while some species are cultivated in the southern regions.

The stems possess re-curved spines and are sharply four-angled when young, becoming more cylindrical with age. The leaves are usually covered with hairs.

Lantana does not have a taproot; however, the roots form an extensive mat below the surface that traps water, soil and nutrients. This makes Lantana a rambling, drought-resistant plant that has a tendency to smother other plants nearby.


Doctrine of Signatures

Appearing like a veil over the landscape, it is a profuse grower, completely covering everything it rambles over.

When cleared, the true shape and nature of the landscape underneath is revealed and can look very different. Little trees, shrubs and plants, in fact a complete garden, can appear as if out of nowhere once the screen is removed.

The soil is always very fertile underneath — it is nourished by the Lantana even as it covers it. When intact, it provides natural wildlife corridors and safe havens for birds and tiny animals. It is as if a whole world exists under the lantana cover.

Because of its propensity to ‘take over’ the native bush land in tropical areas, it is considered a noxious weed. It is usually found in areas where native vegetation has already been previously cleared. Lantana is a much-loved cultivar in southern climates where it does not grow so rampantly. It is interesting to note that Lantana is a common weed in areas that are known to be ‚asthma prone.‘

The flowers are tiny petaled flowerlets on a flower head, giving the appearance of a single flower. They have a strong pungent aroma, which permeates the surrounding environment. They first appear as bright yellow and orange and change to a soft pastel pink and cream as they mature. The change in the colour of the flowers as they mature suggests the softening that takes place when we apply our inner wisdom in our dealings with others — that instead of dumping our negative energy onto our loved ones, we affirm in them a sense of inner strength and faith in themselves.
