Carolyn J. Connolly level-classic December 10, 2006

This is a REALLY pretty floral capture, Stan!! The colours in these lantana blooms are EXCEPTIONAL, and the lighting, details, textures, AND composition are all SUPERB!! :o)

Sadly, as Paul E pointed out, even though the main, wild variety of lantana here in Oz does have "a gorgeous flower...(it IS) such a noxious weed...!"!! It spreads like crazy, especially along most of the eastern coast of Australia!! Some people here do grow the smaller, compact, hybridised, varieties in their gardens, to great effect, but the wild variety needs eradicating, and that is an almost impossible task!! :o/

ANYWAY - this is a WONDERFUL image, Stan!! Do you have this plant growing in your garden? :o) #3689296

Stanley J. Contrades December 12, 2006

I don't have this growing anywhere near my yard (LOL!) and don't want any either, even if the blossoms are so colorful! They do grow all over the place and some have hedges of them in their yards, but the scent is not the most pleasing!! Thanks very much for stopping by to comment, Carolyn, and I am very grateful for your continued support and generosity!!
With fondest Aloha,
Stan #3696891
