Lantana (Lantana camara)

This amazing plant comes in many combinations of red, yellow, and orange flowers in small clusters. They grow as a bush and can reach up to 6 feet tall and wide. Deadheading spent flowers will encourage additional blooming and will prevent the growth of toxic berries. Lantanas are easy to care for and grow anywhere in well drained soils. Enjoy this attractive plant as butterflies enjoy the sweet nectar from the beautiful blooms.
