I hankered after Lantana after seeing the flowers at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA, and at the Philadelphia International Flower Show. Stratoz planted one small pot of them this spring, and they have burst forth into a kaleidescope of colors. It’s like watching the sun set, as the colors change from red to orange to pink, a surprise every morning. One plant has spread out to surround my mosaic bowling ball, which makes a fine backdrop to all this orange delight.
Yes! They are a favorite flower as well! Very fractal-like too! Beautiful!
Fractal is a very apt description.
Beautiful flowers they are! I have been to Longwood Gardens and just loved it!
Last year was the first that I planted Lantana’s and I fell in love with them. I will have them every year now and they are one of the few flowers that have done well in our heat and dryness this summer. Your’s are beautiful and I absolutely love the mosaic with them!
Thanks Carol! When I was mosaicing the bowling ball, it was a challenge, but I’m so glad I finished it. I’m glad you have planted Lantana too!
I love how you’ve framed your beautiful mosaic with that gorgeous orange!
Beautiful photo, and definitely orange!
So this name Lantana, thanks for the info.
Beautiful photo! I love how the orange lantana flowers and the blue mosaic compliment each other. Lantana remind me of my happy childhood. Thanks!
