Lantana is a smelly, scrambling, shrubby, poisonous weed. Seeds are spread by birds, and suckering roots allow thickets to remain dense, shading out other plants.
Branched, smelly, hairy, somewhat prickly perennial shrub up to 3 m tall in warm places. Small, tubular flowers in tight bunches, of variable colour, usually changing from cream or yellow to pink, purplish-pink or rose.
Cut down and paint stumps with Weed Weapon Invade Gel.
For small patches dig out and dispose of root crowns and rhizomes at a refuse transfer station.
