Hi, Can anyone help me to identify this plant, i have pictures of leaves, flowers and fruit which seem like black mulberries, basically i need to know if this is poisonous since i have my kids playing in the garden. My location is Malta (EU)
This looks very like Lantana. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lantana
I spend a lot of time in Spain, and this is a very common plant there. The flowers come in all colours, and I've certainly seen ones the colour of yours.
Hope this helps.
Lantana camara - origen South America.
-ripe fruit edible
-leaves poisonous if eaten
-may cause skin rash if sensitive
-one of africa's most successful alien weeds - birds love it
Cut back the bush and let your children play outside.
