Lantana

(Lantana camara, Zones 8 to 11)

What a beauty this abundant bloomer is! While it’s really considered a perennial only in warmer regions, you can keep this lovely plant going by using it in containers and then overwintering it indoors. If you’re successful, you’ll have a garden all-star for years to come.

Why we love it: The compact cluster of blooms has a tropical feel, and butterflies love it.
