Visited the Denver Botanical Gardens today. These plants were at the entrance. Everything is so lush and full all the ID markers are covered up.

What is this -- is it a type of geranimum?

BTW the bees are rampant, do you think that means we are going to have a heavy snow winter?

The coleus and Canna I recognized, just did not know what the flower one is.

Thanks I will browse the Lantanas and see if I can find it.

If all else fails, I can call the Botanic Gardens and ask.

Josephine, I see you have a lot of the postings in Lantana so believe you have expertise with the Lantana.

In the Database I found Lantana Camara, Radiation, Rose glow, Cherry sunrise, All of which looked something like it.

There was a Dallas Red but also I found another site which shows just Texas Lantana which Is the Urticoides variation I think

It really looks like these blossoms. The thing that appears a bit different is the pinky tinge to some of the flowers petals on the one at DBG.

http://npsot.org/wp/story/2011...

Maybe there was more than one variety in that planter.

Thanks so much. I think I will recognize the Lantana from now on.

I was surprised about the size of the blossom, some as large as maybe 2inches across,

Do most Lantanas have a blossom that large?

I'm all ears! I'm all ears!

I'd suggest that you contact the Botanical Gardens. I've tried growing lantana here and it's fine during the summer months, but I've never been able to overwinter it. Maybe they can give you some tips on care and feeding in our colder climates. Smiling And if they do, please share! Hilarious!

I'm fairly sure it is a variety of Lantana camera, but I seriously doubt you will get a positive ID on the cultivar. The flowers are extremely variable on lantana and they change color as the age. There are so many cultivars that are almost identical adding to that the variability of each flower it would be difficult if even possible to get a positive ID of the exact cultivar.

I also thought Lantana camara: Common Lantana (Lantana camara) which is a Category 1 non-native invasive here in Florida.

I agree that there is a lot of variation in Lantanas, so it could be one of those mentioned, I usually go by the color. Smiling
