Lantana camara


Lantana, Lantana camara, is a weed of national significance to Australia and threatens stock through its toxicity. All lantana should be treated as poisonous to stock. Red flowered varieties are thought to be the most toxic but some white and pink flowered varieties can also be highly toxic. Most lantana poisoning occurs when stock unfamiliar with the plant are introduced to areas where lantana is found. Young animals are most at risk. Stock bred in lantana-infested country tend to avoid it unless forced to eat it through lack of adequate food.
