General Description

Dallas red lantana is an everblooming, evergreen tropical shrub this is grown as a tender perennial in temperate zones. A native of the tropical Americas, this plant is grown for its numerous rounded clusters of small, tubular flowers that are first yellow and orange when they open and darken to brilliant cherry red. These are followed by clusters if blue-black berries.
