Lantana grows here in abundance, without needing anything from humans to help it along. It is one of the great native flowering plants in Central Texas.
We have yellow, orange, purple and white lantana in different places in our yard. But my favorite is the multi-colored pink & yellow lantana. Before we built the shop, there was a beautiful, huge multi-colored lantana growing right in the middle of where the slab was to be poured. It ended up getting torn out. I’ve mourned the loss of that lantana ever since.
So, today I was very happy to see a new lantana growing in the backyard that is just starting to pop out with those great multi-colored blooms.
