Patty, you'll love it...but remember it's an Annual and won't overwinter there. It's not supposed to make it here, either, but it does in that wonderful, south facing micro-climate in front of the house. wink I planted the "Irene" about three years ago...one little piddly bedding plant and she gets huge now...about 2 1/2' tall by 3' wide at least. She has an upright growth while the gold sprawls all over the place.

I also have a really pretty "Pink Dawn" Lantana that has the upright habit. Don't pay any attention to the Gaura stems growing all through the Lantana in this picture.

laugh Deb, I don't know how I got started doing that. Maybe because I raised three girls and have always had female dogs? wink And on top of that, I refer to the trees and shrubs as "he" or "him" so you tell me how nutz am I? nutz

Comforting !!! LOL !
I think of my lemon tree as a "she". Maybe cuz she bears fruit?
Also, I always think of butterflies as girls.
Because they're pretty, I guess.

When he was still alive, everytime I would do or say something totally goofy, my Dad would tell me the men in white coats were coming for me. Thanks for giving me a good chuckle, Deb. wink
