Lantana is a genus of about 150 species of perennial flowering plants in the verbena family, Verbenaceae. They are native to tropical regions of the Americas and Africa but exist as an introduced species in numerous areas, especially in the Australian-Pacific region. The genus includes both herbaceous plants and shrubs growing to 0.5–2 m (1.6–6.6 ft) tall. Their common names are shrub verbenas or lantanas. The generic name originated in Late Latin, where it refers to the unrelated Viburnum lantana. This is a Lantana camara in our garden, which this butterfly is finding particularly tempting.


  1. Love the delicate, pretty colours of lantana! And the butterfly adds an extra magical touch!

  2. You like Lantana, have you smelt it? In South East Asia, it is called Chicken shit flower. and it is true, It smells awful.

  3. What a photo! You can almost see the fluttering of the butterfly's wings. They seem to love lantana flowers.

  4. What a fantastic photo! The butterfly is beautiful, although I must admit that I don't like the smell of lantana plants.

  5. Beautiful photo!
    I don't remember if the wild flower is fragrant.
