The Lantana plant starts out innocently as a $2.97 plant from the local diy store as this one did. I always have Lantana around to feed the butterflies, bees and hummers. See my previous post about the Tiger Swallowtail. This one was purchased because who can resist this sales person?
Here is my $2.97 plant now. Maybe I should have bought the $1.79 one.
Those blossoms hold lots of nectar for the butterflies, and they do love them.
Lantanas are part of the Verbena family and are more like a wildflower in growth habit. They can grow up to 10' high. There are three native species of Lantana in Florida: but wild sage or button sage are the most prevelant; they have white flowers with yellow centers. Anything with orange and yellow is called Lantana Depressa. They are extremely drought resistant.
