Please identify these berrys


I live in lake placid FL and these are growing in my back yard. Can anyone identify them? I would like to know if they are edible. Here is a link to the pictures that I took of them.

Looks like the fruit of Lantana camara which I don't think is edible. If so, the leaves should be very aromatic when brushed/bruised.

Yes, this is Lantana and no, it isn't edible. It's toxic in varying degrees to most animals, including humans. But birds like the berries.
