Added Some Lantana To The Mix

21. May 2008 Gardening, Pictures 0

This past weekend we worked hard at getting all the plants for the pool area, but also – we decided to pick up some Lantana to put on the side of the house where our Oleander is.  Shala had wanted some Lantana for a while, her Mom always has some growing.  We always opted out when we would see it, but this past weekend we picked up a small plant.  We like to get the smaller ones, so we can see it grow into a big plant under our care. 

Hope we don’t screw it up.  😉

This is the “confetti” variety of Lantana, with pink, orange and yellow blooms.  You can see the pic below of it after we placed it in its hole home.

I do have to give a bit of an update though.  This is prior to our GIGANTIC puppy throwing herself in reverse and placing a GIGANTIC paw right dead on the plant.  Instantly she took out half of the plant.  So we have the half she broke off soaking in a glass of water in the window seal, hoping we can root it and save the little guy.  We are trying to make the best of the situation.  Can you tell?!?
