Berry Poisonous

“That necklace contains an herb called Vervain. It protects you from being compelled. I wanted to protect you from Damon’s influence. But I also wanted to protect you from me.” -Stefan Salvatorre

Remember the flower I saw in Fontana? I finally know what they are called! Thanks to Chelsea Owens for asking her neighbor what these are!

These are lantana camara flowers known in the Philippines as kantutay. I know, sounds awkward for a pretty flower.

Anyway, thank God I didn’t try the berries. I read that the berries, especially unrip ones, can be toxic.

Further research led me to learning that it’s a relative of vervain. Yup. It’s that herb they used in Vampire Diaries to prevent being compelled by a vampire. Now I wonder if they planted these to ward off any similar creatures… Creepy!!!
