|Design Ideas||This remarkably hardy perennial is an unparalleled source of quick foliage and flowers in warmer climates. Plants grow very fast to fill in a young landscape, or use as a single-season makeover plant. Very resilient in extreme heat, particularly reflected heat off driveways or street paving. A natural for filling sunny banks and slopes. Plant in flower and shrub beds, raised planters, along fence lines and foundations, and in parkways. Put them in pots for powerful color on a deck or patio with brightly blooming annual flowers. With its orange and pink flowers, this lantana is stunning in tropically inspired gardens.|
