Transplanted Coleus and Lantana

Coleus transplantedEvery time I shop at Lowe’s, I check the mark-down plants in the garden department. Even though I don’t “need” any more plants, I succumb to the purchase of items for one dollar (or three dollars). The Coleus is ten times larger than when I brought it home–and overdue for a larger planter. Likewise the Lantana has thrived, and bloomed, and overdue for a larger planter.

Pebbles for planters

Recycled soil

Lantana is hardy and will be happy in recycled soil. (Quality soil from earlier this year.) A not-so-fancy planter because it may join the planters on the south side of my trailer home. Frankly, I’m not fond of Lantana but it provides lots of colorful blooms. ~~ Honestly, I love to give Mexican Petunia, and Lantana, to friends and neighbors.
