Chicken Dropping Plant

Came across this beautiful flower (Lantana Camara) at Lorong Halus (the old landfill or dumping ground).
The flowers are in a cluster, shape like an umbrella. They come in various colours and multi colour varieties. It will grow in just about any soil, and in full sun to part shade.

It is also known as ‘chicken dropping’ plant because of the pungent smell from the leaves. Since it is so hardy, it is considered an invasive weed in some countries.
