This did not come with a tag. I have no idea what it is and when I received it, it has beautiful yellow/orange/pink flowers on it but now they're all shriveling you and dying and I have no idea why. It's been 5 day's

Hello, your plant appears to be a lantana. The shriveling May just be shock. Lantana like a lot of sun. Maybe move it outside?

Oh okay thank you!! It's under a grow light AND in front of a window so I honestly thought it was getting too much light. But thank you for identifying it Smiling
I'll try my best to take care of it now!

You're welcome! Check out the lantanas in the data base. They're relatively easy to grow. And the butterflies love them! Pic below.

I know you will! Good luck. They do well in hanging baskets, so if you have a place on a sunny porch to hang a basket, it's a perfect place to put one.

I agree, your plant appears to be a variety of Common Lantana (Lantana camara) and they do require high light. They grow in full sun here in Florida.
