I rescued two four inch pots of Lantana from Lowe's clearance table a few months ago. They were small but in good condition and I just couldn't leave them there to languish until they expired. I planted them in the rose bed that's on the back corner of the side yard near the alleyway. I wasn't sure they'd do much of anything but for 50 cents each, I figured it wasn't any great loss if they didn't. The Head Gardener says I underestimated them and I guess she's right. They each cover a four foot square area and are about 24 inches tall. For this week's Three for Thursday, here are 3 blooms from those plants ... the color variations never fail to intrigue me AND make me smile!
"I call that a bargain, the best I ever had ..." (What? No, Who ... The, not Doctor.)
