Lantana, originally from the Americas, is a thicket forming shrub that has spread from gardens into pastures, woodlands, and rainforests. It forms dense thickets up to 4 metres high and reproduces by layering and by seed production, dispersed by birds, animals, and water. The flower clusters are 20 – 30mm in diameter and are brightly coloured; the fruits are initially green ripening to dark purple. The most efficient method of control is by mechanical means, but full PPE is advised. Lantana is one of Australia’s worst weeds as it reduces the productivity of pastures and forestry and invades native ecosystems. It is also toxic to native fauna, stock, and humans. It was introduced as a garden ornamental in the 1840s. (framed)
