Lavender lantana montevidensis enjoys cool weather. Yellow lantana
has already given up for the season. Pine straw that falls around this bed from
trees to the north is simply raked up close before the mower goes by.
Chartreuse Alternanthera, Purple Heart and Red Alternanthera.
One season's growth of Lantana planted this year.
Great groundcover to fall over stones.
I rooted some white Lantana and let the cuttings die for lack of
water in their little tray out of sight, out of mind. Do over.
Purple Datura still blooming despite cool nights.
Daturas with their black stems were
more appropriate for Halloween,
Brugmansia suaveolens blooms. paler since nights got cooler.
A native of Brazil, they die back to roots here.

filling with tender plants before frost arrives and
bulbs like Amaryllis for Christmas blooms.
