Ant condominiums (also known as Lantana)

6 08 2011

I watched a multitude of ants coming in and out of the tiny flowers of this Lantana camara bloom and immediately thought the individual florets functioned like little condos or cubicles. (You might be able to see the two ants on the left side of the bloom; upper left going into a ‘condo’ and lower left coming out.) I think this plant is the Lantana ‘Pink Caprice’ cultivar.

Thanks Cindy. Ants intrigue except when they make themselves at home in my house! You always view things–ant, plants, people–through a most creative lens.

In order to save time, ink and paper I repeat exactly what Barbara said.
