Lantana's bright flowers, hardy nature make it a winner

SALISBURY — Now in its second year, the lantana study trial is under way and looking quite beautiful at the Agriculture Center on Old Concord Road.
The demonstration plot is arranged in four quadrants, each featuring mounding, trailing and compact varieties in an abundance of colors. Plants were selected from local providers so that they are easily available locally. Considered a lazy gardener’s favorite plant, lantana originated in Texas in the hot, dry desert areas and is guaranteed to grow well in our summer heat. Minimal care is required of all of the lantana plants in our study and some are sure to be among Rowan gardeners’ favorites.
