Sunday spotlight: Lantana South Beach Compact Hot Pink.

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?
