Lantana

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.

Identifying

Solving

Spray (summer-autumn, before leaves become brittle) with Weed Weapon Extra StrengthRapid Action   or LawnPro Prickle Control with Dye & Stick ensuring complete coverage.

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.
