Default Kumara Lantana.



Kumara Lantana is a beautiful hedgerow plant which is common in Australasia.
I live in the UK and have been searching for a source of seeds for this
plant in order to establish it in my garden. It's phenomenally attractive to
butterflies and has the appearance of a sort of umbellifer but with
honeysuckle-like flowers on the heads.
I would be grateful for clue as to how to obtain seed for this. Seedsmen in
Australia say it's outside of the "gardening" remit because of it's hedgerow
origins. In other words they don't carry seed for it.
It's a cracking plant though and I want some.

Can anyone advise, please?
Thank you

Mpro.

If this is the same as Lantana camara, then you can find some references
via Google.

T&M appear to be among the companies that carry it.

There are some 150 species of Lantana.

The reason why seed of Lantana camara is not available in Australia would
appear to be its reputation as the worst alien invader on the continent, and
the Aussie desperation in trying to get rid of it. It may be illegal to sell
such seeds?

I don't think it's illegal because I have seen it once growing in an
ornamental in the UK. It isn't Kumara Camara that I want though, it is most
definitely "Kumara Lantana". I imagine it's the same family as the wild
potato-like plant that's known in Polynesia. I can't find any references to
this specific plant on Google. Only to Camara. Specimen at

I had to think for a minute because you had the name slightly messed up. What
you want is Lantana camara. You should be able to buy them from a houseplant
nursery. In this country they are also sold in the North as annuals. Yes. the
inflorescence is an umbel. They belong to the Verbenaceae.

Newsflash: the fact that it is not illegal in the UK has no bearing on the
question if it is illegal in Australia. The worldwide introduction of US-law
everywhere is still some time off.

Also the fact that a plant grows somewhere does not mean it is legal (cf
Cannabis, which is grown in quite a few spots)

The common ornamental lantana grown in SE Queensland was not
considered to be a problem until recently. It has now been banned
from sale along with all other types. [This new law will not come
into force until 1 Nov 2003.]

It seems that, although the garden variety is allegedly sterile, it's
possible its pollen may be effective in fertilising the more robust
and very nasty forms that are such a menace to pastoralists and to the
the environment generally.
