Four tiny Skittles Lantana were bought on the discount rake last year. No real heavy freeze to kill them in NE Florida. So this year they are huge. 3-4 foot wide, 2 foot tall. One sported a side branch that was not variegated, a dark green. Slightly taller. Think I will root the sport. I like it better because the flowers show better against the green.

The unripe fruit of this species is toxic to humans. The foliage is toxic to many animals if ingested.

This species has naturalized in 14 states and is considered damagingly invasive to natural areas in Florida and Hawaii.

The World Conservation Union IUCN has included this species on their list of 100 of the world's worst invasive species, an honor it shares with only 31 land plants.
