Lantana camara (West Indian Lantana) Front view illustration of a West Indian Lantana. It is a weed of cultivated land, fence lines, pastures, rangelands, and waste places.  It thrives in dry and wet regions and often grows in valleys, mountain slopes, and coastal areas. It is somewhat shade-tolerant and, therefore, can become the dominant understory in open forests or in tropical tree crops. In pastures it forms dense thickets which shade out and encroach upon desirable pasture plants.  With time it can form pure stands over large areas, the symbol,vector,illustration,shrub,west indian,lantana,spanish flag,invasive,non-native,sage,red,wild,yellow,la‘au kalakala,Angiosperms,Eudicots,Asterids,Lamiales,Verbenaceae,Lantana
