Lantana is a perennial shrub in the family Verbenaceae and it originates from south-central America. It has rough, dentate, deep-green leaves which, when broken, give off an unmistakable scent. The Sellowiana variety has a hanging shape and smaller leaves.

When the blooming finishes, the lantana grows poisonous berries which become edible once they are ripe.
