Lantana

Lantana beside the rice paddies in Batad rice terraces

A flower that grows in the wild, (like most flowers in the wilderness) is more beautiful than those in well tended gardens.

Golasiman shows its beauty and generosity a few hours each day in its happiest time - when the sun is up . See the tiny bee? He too is happy

Everyday, the flowers will open when the sun is up. A signal for the tiny bees to feed and a pretty sign for me to leave for the office. A few hoursĀ  afterwards, the flowers will close while the plant continues to worship the sun throughout the day.

Very easy to propagate, just cut and plant. It will then root. See the tiny bees in the yellow ones?
