Lantana for Summer Project in My Backyard

Bright color of Lantana

I just visited one of nurseries in my city, Baton Rouge. One flower called Lantana has been attracted me.

Lantana is a scientific genus with 150 species spread to many part in the world include here in the USA.

This flowers grow well in the southern states of USA, because warmer temperature, and Lantana produce flowers during hot summers.

In Louisiana, we have several types of Lantana, some of them are:
- Lantana camara
- Lantana montevidensis,
- Lantana urticoides
- Lantana Involucrata
- Lantana horrida


Another type of Lantana

It is said that Lantana may reach to 6 feet (2 meter) tall. Interestingly, the flowers are diseases and insect free.

Butterflies and hummingbirds love to visit Lantana, because flowers have attractive colors and sources of foods.


Pink color of Lantana

Many pollinators found nectar and pollen in the Lantana flowers, hence our backyard to be friendly garden for pollinators.

I am planning to grow Lantana in my backyard as my summer project.

Do you have specific project in this summer season?

  19. What wonderful flowers. In the field we have plants and hydrangeas in charge of beautifying the gardens. They need the sun as well as the air, but they can handle dry times very well. I would almost say that they hardly need the occasional rain watering. Beautiful post, Evi.

    Huge hugs more and more super huge.

  21. Verás que bello te va a quedar tu patio, con esas bonitas flores.
    Aprovechando que ahora nos dejan salir un poco, hace tres días, compré dos macetas con Gitanillas y otras dos con Geranios, que son plantas autóctona de esta zona, y aguantan medio bien las temperaturas que aquí sufrimos en verano, de más de 40º C.
    Un abrazo, Evi, y ánimo que ya nos queda menos.
