Lantanas are great hot weather plants. We’ve previously concentrated on the cold hardy types, but some of the less hardy are great color additions. And there are lots of vibrant colors. The upright, mounding ones include gold, orange, red, yellow/white bi-color. Low growing varieties are found in shades of lavender, white and yellow.

The first ‘Knock Out’ rose miniature – ‘Petite Knock Out’. The ‘Knock Out’ roses are known for their durability, disease resistance and spring to fall bloom. This new variety with it’s fire engine red blooms is no different than the original ‘Knock Out’ rose. They’re currently available as patio trees.
