Can anyone tell me what this is?

My beau’s mom just got back from Hawaii and smuggled seeds of this plant with her! I don’t know what it is and was going to try several germination methods to see which one worked but thought if someone knew what it was then I could go from there :)

    Too bad I have already packed my botanical books, as I have a field guide to Hawaii’s native flowers. Hope someone can help with the ID.

    I agree with anelson. Looks like the lantana I’ve seen growing wild everywhere there. Do you have a closer picture of the flowers to confirm?

    Looks like a pink cultivar of Lantana camara. :)
