Oxalis pes-caprae, called, among many other names, Bermuda buttercup, is a very pretty and nasty little invasive weed from South Africa.

Sometimes called Australian Fuschia though it's more closely related to citrus and coffee than Fuschia. Hardy in USDA zones 9 through 11. Have you tried this one in your garden? ... See MoreSee Less

Lantana (Lantana camara) is a tender evergreen shrub from South and Central America. The flowers come in many separate colors or in mixed colors in the same cluster. It's hardy in USDA zones 10 and 11 and is a noxious invasive weed in mild winter climates around the world. It's a non-invasive annual in colder climates. Have you tried it in hanging baskets? ...

Andrew RickerI was in Wichita, KS this past September and visited the botanic gardens there. They had a lot of lantana planted and I was impressed with how the butterflies swarmed all over it. I may have to give it a try in a hanging basket this year.
