Lantana

If you have a hot, baked spot, lantana is your answer. This hardworking plant not only thrives with little moisture and in full, unyielding sun, it does so with ease. In fact, lantana is a flower that seems to have it all: It produces an abundance of brightly colored flowers all summer and fall, and it's a magnet for butterflies (hummingbirds like it, too). It's easy to grow and a great choice for containers. Plus, if you have a sunny spot indoors, you can grow it as a charming indoor plant. In frost-free climates (Zones 9-11), it's a great perennial groundcover, as well.

Plant It With
Angelonia

Since lantana has a spreading habit, grow it with an upright plant, such as angelonia, to add height and variation to your plantings.

Pentas

Colorful pentas heads attract tons of butterflies and hummingbirds, and they like hot, dry spots, much like lantana.

Salvia

Many types of salvia, especially blue salvia, look great with the fiery-color cultivars of lantana.
