The flower of this plant reminds me of the Lantana tangerine, but the flowers are splaced out more. It is a tender plant that produces lots of seeds, which can be readily propagated. It can just about survive in a cold greenhouse for planting out the following year. The sap is milky and could be a skin irritant. In some countries it is a feared weed, because the seeds propagates like Willowhwerb.
