Lantana Topiary

One flowering perennial that will never let you down is the lantana. 
Lantana come in a variety of colors: lavender, yellow, orange, 
and an appealing orange-pink-yellow tri-color.
My favorite is the tri-color.
They love heat and dry conditions and will grow easily into a small shrub.
Despite all their good qualities, they've never been my first choice for planting.

 But this week I was in the garden center and saw a lantana
that had had been trained into a small topiary tree.
Pretty and unusual. 
I may have to give it a try next summer.
