Flowers for Lindsay :o)

Lindsay wasn't sure what lantana was so here is a close-up. I wouldn't think it is a popular plant in England being a rather cool wet climate. Lantana thrives in hot, dry weather. It attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Some winters are mild enough that it grows back next year but all of mine died out this year. It comes in two different varieties...upright and spreading and several different colors such as white, lavender, pink, yellow and orange. It makes a lovely display in mass plantings. I'll try to remember to take a picture later in the summer after it has filled in.

It would never last over here unless it's in a hot house which is a shame because it's a really pretty flower.

Thank you for posting pics with me in mind
