Thanks everyone...that shot was taken in the spring...the plant went for awhile without blooms during the hot months, but now it is busting out again. I do love the color changes of this one from bud to flower.

The colors are so fantastic. Love your shot,

It seems the last few weeks only lantana is in full bloom in the nurseries. I have seen such beautiful ones. I have resisted though. I am drowning in plants for the winter but I think I will get more in spring. The ones here though planted in the garden get so huge. I do not have the space. I have 1 that has both yellow and white blooms in a pot for several years and I just love it and it seems to love me too. It was originally planted with a purple one and it was so pretty together. But the purple hated me and left.

This one you captured so well is a for sure to get one!

Kell.. I have lavender, white, golden and the Dallas Red photographed. I have had the lavender and white for many years in the ground and have to trim them back or they'll take over the garden. They all bloom sporadically during the hot summer months, but do the most blooms starting early fall and keep blooming even after we have nights down into the freezing temperatures. In fact the leaves will burn, but the flowers still pop out. All the way up until the heat in May...I chop them way down to the ground then. The Dallas Red will freeze and not come back, so I keep it in a pot...do I can lug it in on those darn freezing nights...but it is a hybrid and not the native weeds like the others. Guess they like FL humidity.
