Good morning everyone-I had heard from some folks that Lantana attracts butterflies and even hummers I think so when I happened to see these on clearance for a low price I decided to get 3 for a spot next to my orange butterfly weed. When I purchased them they were fairly small but in good condition and of course they are a perennial so I knew I could plant them and have them year after year with low maintenance.
Now what has been a wonderful surprise is that they have about tripled in size in the 2 months or less that I have had them especially the one on the closest end in the first pic. While the pics didn't come out as clear as I would have liked probably due to the sun being out but you get the idea of how big they are.
Now behind it I planted a orange hummingbird vine and while it hasn't flowered and probably won't til next yr as I just bought those shortly before the lantana. They will be orange and I got 4 of them. Three of them are in the bed next to this one. They have also taken off and are growing well. They were bareroot when I purchased them. Some happy hummers for sure next yr.
In the second pic you can get a clearer pic of the hummingbird vine growing. I wound it all the way up the fence it had grown so much. I am pleased with all of these.
