The ethanolic extract of Lantana camara flowers were subjected to preliminary antimicrobial activity by agar well diffusion method and found to be active against both Gram-negative Escherichia coli as well as Gram-positive methicillin-sensitive and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains. Biochemical property of the extract was established by phytochemical analysis. The preliminary biochemical tests showed the presence of reducing sugars, flavonoids, glycosides, tannins, and phenolic, these groups of compounds have previously been reported to exhibit anti-microbial effects.
