Oh, what spectacular colour! Annual Lantana South Beach™ Compact Hot Pink looks like a tropical dream – can you imagine a basket or planter full of this?
Not only will it make your neighbours jealous, but lantana is also heat and drought tolerant and it doesn’t require much care. Well-drained soil is a must and you’ll have to maintain a regular feeding schedule as you would with your other annuals, but really, all you have to do is stand back and admire it – which is such a hardship, I agree! 😉
(Check Hort Couture’s website for more of the lantanas in this series…I’m particularly gaga over the Compact Mango).
Do you grow lantana in your garden? What is your favourite cultivar?
