Southern Gardening: Lantana provides summer color, beauty
With the temperatures heating up, many landscapers and gardeners are looking for plants that can stand up to the Mississippi summer.
Luckily, they don’t have to look any farther than hot summer lantana.
Lantana is available in a variety of sizes and colors. I really like lantanas that have a spreading growth habit because they can act as ground covers and are covered with blooms nonstop. In fact, these plants can be used in place of flowering annuals. Once established, lantanas are reasonably drought tolerant, but supplemental irrigation is necessary during dry conditions like those we have been experiencing in Mississippi.
