You are looking at "the most studied weed in the world". I find it odd this was in a state park. I have written to the state to ask them why they would plant an invasive species in a state park. I could be wrong; this does not look like Lantana depressa but like the toxic Lantana camara. You flower experts let me know.

I thought the colors looked really nice contasting with the greens. Not bad for a "weed".
