Three-Leaved Lantana is a plant we grew at the Oklahoma Gardening studio garden back in the late 1990’s. I had not seen it anywhere in years but was delighted to recently find it again. People love its lavender-purple flower clusters that are followed by interesting and attractive fruit clusters. They sort of look like miniature bunches of grapes. Some sources list them as edible while others list them as toxic. Other lavender/purple Lantanas are trailing plants whereas this species is upright, providing great perching spots for butterflies. This easy-to-grow plant gets its name from the 3 leaves whorled around each node along its stems.
