History:
Common spreading Lantana (Lantana camera) is native to Central and South America. It was brought to Australia and the Pacific region as an ornamental plant in the 1840's. French breeders developed the modern forms in the color ranges we know today at the close of the 19th century. Allan Armitage, well known plantsman from the University of Georgia, was the first to detail the benefits of New Gold around 1995. Lantana is considered invasive in many parts of the world where it has naturalized. The leaves are poisonous to animals, but the berries are a delicacy to many bird species. New Gold is a cross between Lantana camera and Lantana montevidensis.
