Positive uviolet On May 18, 2012, uviolet from St Clair Shores, MI (Zone 6a) wrote:

This is perhaps my favorite variety of Lantana. It grows fast and blooms profusely, however, it's always sad when the first hard freeze of the season hits and the leaves turn bronze and die. New blooms tend to have the orange center which fades to all red as the bloom gets older.

The only "drawback" is that it's a favorite snack for the Asiatic Garden Beetles. It's so very worth having to go out and smash the suckers most nights in the early summer in order to have these, however.

Lovely red-orange flowers have yellow florets in center. It is a perennial in zones 10 & 11 and an annual elsewhere. It is very showy. It is a heavy bloomer.
