Last year a purple Globe Amaranth (Gomphrena globosa) from a nearby bed seeded itself in another bed of Lantana 'Dallas Red.' I loved the punchy color combination of the reds yellows oranges and purples. Early this spring I decided to plant my globe amaranth seedlings in with 'Dallas Red' so this year, I can take credit for the twosome!
This is another lantana that really takes off when the weather gets hot. I wish I knew the variety, but I can't remember, since I planted it about four years ago. The flowers are hot pink and yellow. If anyone has a clue, let me know!
