HISTORY
Lore Lantana sellowiana is also known as L. montevidensis, named because it is native to the hills surrounding Uruguay capital city of Montevideo. A member of the Verbenacea family, it is sometimes referred to as Wild Verbena. Lantana species have been cultivated for nearly 300 years, and lore tells us it has been used for centuries longer in folk medicines; poultices for snake bites and sprains, and elixirs to treat ailments. It is said that the dried leaves burned in a glass jar are a natural mosquito repellent. However, it must be noted that the leaves and stems contain an alkaloid that is toxic to browsing animals, and the berries are poisonous. The bright, aromatic flowers of Lantana are adored by nectar-seeking wildlife, and as such are a a staple of a classic butterfly garden.
