Butterflies find these large areas of lantana attractive. Growing with the lantana are New York Ironweed, Solidago and Beautyberry. Earlier in the season, there were passionflowers blooming, handy for the Gulf Frits for depositing eggs.
Beautyberry grows in the midst of the lantana. Both are from the same family of verbenacea.
Viewed up close, clusters of shiny black seeds are visible, which is why I don't transplant these lantanas to the tamer house garden. They grow very well along the south edge of the little woods, with a mowed path through tall grass where we can get up close to view.
