Love the banner, Fleur. I have always liked the flowers and in FL where they are considered weeds, I still have a couple of bushes "just because"..... Thumbs up

yes it is recognized weed here that has escaped and taken over naturalized bushland locations. Where it's not so invasive, it sure has the prettiest colourful flowers and makes for a delightful banner Smiling

@TBGDN The big box "stuff mart" hardware stores sell them as a 'woody' annual here, in Ohio. I'm surprised they don't in your area, being a neighbor state. Shrug! Although, perhaps you avoid those places and shop only at real nurseries, like I should Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! but the real nurseries may carry them around here, as well, come to think of it! D'Oh! D'Oh! Rolling on the floor laughing

@bloominholes2fill I stay away from the "big box marts" as much as possible for plant material. Locally I have a couple of Amish nurseries that I shop at. I've not seen Lantana there (that I remember), but I will keep an eye open this spring. Crossing Fingers!
Just a side note: I have seen several "box" stores cramming their outdoor areas full of spring "stuff" which I pass on by. I hate to be brutally frank, but I feel some of them are selling "junk". Thumbs down

Yeah, they do, but we've struggled financially for 7 years, almost lost the house three times, and such, so those places have had to be my "go to" "nurseries" for quite some time. Especially for annuals. Glare Glare I do shop their clearance racks for good bargains, and I've saved a few things here and there! Whistling Whistling Whistling Green Grin!

Edited: There's a very large, family owned nursery opening in North Canton, this season, and I'm "beside myself" excited! Hurray! Hurray! They're from a suburb of Cleveland. Smiling

@TBGDN Leon,

They sell them at Meijer's in the outdoor garden section. I'm sure you have one like I do.

Thanks Marilyn, We have a Meijer's but I haven't checked out their spring set-up yet. I'll give it a look-see before long.
