Lantana (Lantana camara) is a tender evergreen shrub from South and Central America. The flowers come in many separate colors or in mixed colors in the same cluster. It's hardy in USDA zones 10 and 11 and is a noxious invasive weed in mild winter climates around the world. It's a non-invasive annual in colder climates. Have you tried it in hanging baskets? ...

Andrew RickerI was in Wichita, KS this past September and visited the botanic gardens there. They had a lot of lantana planted and I was impressed with how the butterflies swarmed all over it. I may have to give it a try in a hanging basket this year.

One of several different flowers called African daisy, Arctotis x hybrida 'Pink Sugar' is a spectacular tender perennial daisy that comes from Africa. It's winter hardy in USDA zones 9 through 11 but can be grown as an annual anywhere. Have you tried them in pots on the patio? ... See MoreSee Less
