The radrika or lantana is a shrub of the verbenaceae family which measures about 60 cm high. This plant can be recognized by its more or less thorny quadrangular stems, its simple oval leaves of a more intense green, sometimes bluish, rough to the touch. It gives off a strongly spicy smell.
Its panicle flowers let burst a profusion of colors, and transform into berries of blackish blue or purplish color.
Native to Central and South America, lantana is also known as Gambier tea, and it is very poisonous, but it has always been used for its medicinal benefits thanks to its antiseptic and antispasmodic properties.
