    A very bright lantana that attracts loads of butterflies and hummingbirds.
    It is an annual here in my zone 5, but it's worth planting for the butterflies. I think it is best grown in a hanging basket where it can be seen.
    Cut it back in late fall just before frost. I can sometimes winter it over in an unheated garage.
  • Posted by SCButtercup (Simpsonville SC - Zone 7b) on Aug 24, 2014 5:54 AM concerning plant:
    This variety has a low creeping habit and bright red color. The blooms on this one make everyone who sees it say: "I never knew lantana could be so red." I planted mine at the base of a slope and it climbs up, covering part of the slope nicely. Great planted next to Black-Eyed Susans, such as Rudbeckia hirta.
