Lantana camara 'Lucky'

latestnews-latanaAre you looking for a burst of annual color, but unsure about which route to pursue? It is not too late in the summer to add color without losing your investment. Rich-Way Landscape has just the solution.

A small number of Lantana, specifically the camara ‘Lucky’ variety, is a great way to add low groundcover to the front of beds without the worry of pruning, cutting back or dividing all summer. Lantana ‘Lucky’ comes in a multitude of colors, and we can find one that fits the color of your landscape palette seamlessly. These are not your typical lantanas that can reach heights of 3 feet tall. The ‘Lucky’ variety is propagated as a dwarf form without creating a dwarf flower.

I personally have the full yellow growing in the front of my azaleas at home. It gives a beautiful foreground to the azaleas and provides an elegant backdrop to soften the architectural corners and facades of the house. Even with the recent drought in the Midsouth, I have watered these minimally because they actually prefer to have a dry period between watering. We would be happy to meet and discuss placement and selection options in order to best enhance the beauty of your outdoor living space.
