It belongs to the family Verbenaceae and it originates from south-central America. The Lantana is a perennial and bushy shrub that has intense green leaves, wrinkled and dentate that, if broken, give off an unmistakable aroma. The Sellowiana variety has a hanging shape and smaller leaves. Throughout the summer, until the autumn the Lantana produces tubular flowers gathered in corymbs, characterized by the pecularity of changing shades during the blooming, thus resulting in being multi-color (although there are monochromatic varieties). After blooming, poisonous berries appear when they are still unripe, but they become edible when they are ripe.
