I bought this variegated Lantana camara (Family: Verbenaceae) at Chiang Mai before we went to Bangkok in March this year.

The more common variegated Spanish Flag or West Indian Lantana that I often see is the yellow flower greenish-yellow variegated leaved Lantana camara 'Samantha', so this one was really special to me because I have never seen it anywhere before this. However, it seemed a bit sensitive and not as easy to grow since it took this plant so long to recover and grow to this size.

By the way, the colour of the flowers is as shown below, in the last photo I took from the web.
