I'm bemused that this plant, which has one of the most beautiful, intricate, delicate flowers I've ever seen, is considered a weed in Western Australia. Its bloom is like a posy of smaller flowers. This one is a bit ragged at the edges but lovely still. If you click on this picture to view it in close up you'll see what I mean.

A film of the same name came out a few years ago, and it's one of my favourites, too.

Some lantana grows at the base of the staircase which I take on my way up to my office at work, and I love it when it is in bloom! One of my bosses is super-keen on it, too, and every year we seem to have a happy discussion in which we share how much we like these clusters of blossoms....
