When I was a child there was a fence at my parents home covered in lantana. Memories of this lantana fence are so very vivid for one reason; butterflies.
The lantana always seemed to be flowering and always seemed to attract butterflies, lots of butterflies. I can distinctly remember at least 5 different unique species which frequented this fragrant fence however none compare for shear majesty as the beautiful monarch.
Since growing our own lantana the monarch and the memories have returned.
