Flower-a-Day: Lantana

Hot Country Lantana, 6x8, oil/linen
$100, unframed, free shipping in the US
We had lots of thick fog this Am and as it was burning off I decided to do another of my newly purchased plants. This is lantana, variety: "Hot Country". It looks like bi-colored pom-poms in delicious hot shades of yellow, orange, pink, purple. The lingering fog covering the shrubs and trees behind the lantana took on some very interesting bluish hues, providing a strong contrast in colors. A little bit eye-popping, but it has a tropical fun feel to it.
