The Lantana is Enjoying the Heat

The Lantana is Enjoying the HeatMost of us are feeling the heat at this time of year, but the lantana is having a field day. The summer heat only makes this vivid flower bloom in overdrive. While other plants are drying out, it is at its peak.

In southern climates, these flowers grow in dense thickets and start climbing into trees and growing into shrubs, while northern climates get to see a more moderate version.

The lantana is able to bloom in four seasons, it produces a large quantity of berries, which birds spread far and wide. This truly is a flower that is ideal for heat and drought, while filling gardens and wild lands with colour.

The blooms of lantana are really incredible, which makes it one of the most popular and most heavily bred flowers in South America.
