This week I am sharing pictures of my lantana. Lantana is commonly grown as a sun loving flowering annual in the South. A few cultivars are reliably perennial. All are tough, resilient plants that thrive in hot weather and bloom profusely from spring until frost. Lantanas are very attractive to butterflies.

  8. The colors are certainly beautiful and very much loved by butterflies, although humans certainly abhor the smell.

  9. I love this plant. I place a large pot of them near my front door every year. They get a lot of sun and provide constant color all summer.

  15. loving the lantana, and I can almost smell those spicy leaves. Delightful flowers, but unfortunately lantanas are considered a noxious weed that has invaded Australian bushland.
