White Lantana

Lantana camara 'Denholm White’
(lan-TAN-a) (kuh-MAR-uh)

This post was from yesterday only with everything going on I forgot to post it. We are buying a lot of Lantana this year since it seems so durable. It can grow in the lightest water areas of the garden. Puckering up and losing a few leaves is usually what happens when it dries out but Lantana can quickly snap back to life if watered in time. Other than it’s smell it is plant that quickly forms a mat of color and blooms all season. This is the third time white Lantana has been featured here but the first time for this cultivar. It is really white when viewed from a distance and the little yellow centers become more apparent on closer viewing.

The gig went well yesterday. We got told to turn it down a few times but that's rock n’ roll. Our next show is July 13th, which is a Friday night. We are taking a couple of weeks off from practicing since the bass player needs knee surgery.

Usually Sunday’s post has a bonus snapshot so here it is for Monday instead.

I love Lantana. We have Miss Huff in multiple spots in the yard. Haven't seen white available around here.

I love that picture of the Lantana. I remember that I once watched a Cake-making TV show that featured making candy flowers as decors for cakes. The flowers looked just like the Lantana you posted here.

Thanks for sharing!
