I got so sick of seeing yellow lantana every 5 feet in Texas that I decided to try this variety in my garden instead.

I planted in the spring, and it was small and little blooming for a long time...then fall hit, the weather cooled, and it's exploded! Lot of white blooms with creamy yellow middles. I'm guessing our hot summer slowed growing. I'm hoping it will come back next year bigger than ever.

Note - the tiny blossoms are fragile and will fall off if hit with too strong a hose spray. Better off with gentle watering, probably a soaker hose is best to keep the blooms longer.

Profuse, lovely white blooms w/pale yellow center (blooms basically look white from any sort of distance).

Does not dependably return here in the metroplex -- still a great plant, though.
