My fingers are crossed that the weather stays out of the freezing zone. We are still unnaturally cold, but the nighttime temps are hovering in the high 30s, and forecasted to remain there til after the last frost date.
Sooooo..... Plant number one is officially planted, bought as a replacement for the many lantana I dug out of the front garden.
It is a medium purple trailing lantana (lantana montevidensis), and it SHOULD remain on the short side, less than 18-20 inches, which would be a great improvement over the 5 foot tall ones I uprooted in the fall. I like the plant because it is a constant bloomer and I like the color. Its downsides are that it can be invasive and the smell is not appealing to me. Regardless, it is in!
And as a side note, you see, I am not kidding about the amount of cement in the soil. That little pile is just from the hole I dug to place the lantana in. Its nuts.
