    Flowering day 780

    I cut this back to 6-9" about the ground. It is growing great now and flowering.

    Pruning day 708

    Pruned the branches to between 6-12" long. I might trim some of the lower branches to push the plant away from the soil line.

    @Fruitandnutcake Thanks for the suggestion but I know it is not a hydrangea, the photo does not show scale well but these blooms are 2" at most across. Also, the deer who love my hydrangeas never touch this plant.

    I will try to add another image to give more perspective.

    The deer don’t touch this plant because they know it is extremely poisonous. It is Lantana camara. In Zimbabwe—and South Africa—it is illegal to grow it because it is so toxic to livestock. It is also highly invasive. Doesn’t seem to bother birds though because they spread the seeds.

    Second thought…you’re in Raleigh & NC is my home state. Your winters are usually cold enough to kill this stuff back, but it’ll probably return in the spring. This is what happened when I lived in northern California. But the Triangle climate is warm enough for tropical invasive plants to take over. Along I-64 between Raleigh & Durham I have recently seen lots of a very nasty exotic acacia that will quickly take over indigenous species.

    @Mandebvu… You are dead on about it dying back each winter. Reviewing photos of Lantana Camara vs. Rose. It does look more like Camara. Thanks for your help.

    What was the subtle difference which clued you to Camara vs Rose? Was it just the flower color?
