Lantana ‘Miss Huff’

Lantana ‘Miss Huff’ is hardy to ten degrees. Although it dies back in the winter, it returns with a vengeance in early summer and blooms until frost. This plant can reach six to seven feet in one season. It is very bright with yellow, orange and pink flowers that light up the garden for the entire summer. Deer don’t care for it and water needs are minimal. Another hardy lantana is “Chapel Hill”. This one is soft yellow in color and more of a mounding plant, growing to about eighteen inches high and wide.  Other varieties of lantana can be grown as annuals.
