THE LOW­DOWN ON LAN­TANA

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

Lan­tana is a weed of na­tional sig­nif­i­cance to Aus­tralia and threat­ens stock through its tox­i­c­ity. All lan­tana should be treated as poi­sonous to stock. Red-flow­ered va­ri­eties are thought to be the most toxic, but some white and pink-flow­ered va­ri­eties can also be highly toxic.

Species af­fected by lan­tana poi­son­ing in­clude cat­tle, sheep, goats, guinea pigs and rab­bits.
