We received these plants as a gift. They have grown beautifully in our garden this year. Our kids love watching the butterflies on it, but we have no idea what it is. It has woody branches and has bloomed all summer long. Does anyone know? Crossing Fingers!

Looks like Lantana, welcome to the site!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Lantana is easy to grow, hardy, and comes in many different colors. Here are some web images. We use it in our hot desert yards for color.

I agree, lovely Lantana (Lantana camara) It's a noxious, invasive but beautiful weed here in Florida. Smiling
