This impressively vigorous, landscape-sized Lantana forms a mounding then trailing mass of dark green foliage dotted with pretty pink and light yellow bicolor blooms all season with minimal seed set. Use it as a groundcover, in a container all its own, or in large containers with other very vigorous plants. Tones of pink, yellow, and cream produce a gorgeous display of color; heat and drought tolerant with a light, sweet fragrance. Heat and drought tolerant, of course, but also fragrant, annual except in zones 9 - 11, 24 - 36 inches tall. Want to hang out with the birds, bees, and butterflies? Plant me, and you may end up turning that spare bedroom into an aviary slash hive slash butterfly house.
If you are looking for a tough plant it's hard to beat lantana. Lantana is heat tolerant, use little to no supplemental water in the landscape, will tolerate less than ideal soils, and usually don't need to be deadheaded. If you are looking for a plant that will thrive on neglect, lantana is the champ.
