What happens when you marry a lantana and a red potato?
A few useful facts about lantanas:
–using lantana near your outdoor seating areas repels mosquitos naturally and organically. Plus, it’s beautiful. I planted a red skin potato with the lantana to have some vines and to make it prettier.
–can be grown as an annual or perennial, depending on your hardiness zone.
–the height ranges from 6 inches to 8 feet, so notice how high your plant will be when you buy it. Mine is in a pot and grows to 5 feet…good to provide privacy from neighbors.
–comes in beautiful colors of orange, pink, purple, red, white and yellow.
–are deer resistant, drought tolerant (you do need to water them on occasion!), and attracts butterflies, birds, and pollinators.
