What's Blooming In Summer

Lantana has been a much overlooked plant around here. But with the water shortages we experience periodically, it is well worth giving a go. It can be a real rambler, branching out in all directions and overtaking other plants in it's path. We're going to keep these trimmed as small shrubs and see how they perform along with bulbs, annuals and perennials. Not only are they drought tolerant, they're also a favorite of bees and birds.
