FOTD – January 12 – Colourful Lantana

I have 3 different lantana bushes around my house and they are constantly surprising me with the number of colours they can display in their small but incredibly abundant flowers.

I intended to give examples of all 3 bushes in my post but found i just had too many beautiful examples to limit to one post. These flowers are all from the same bush taken on the same day. This bush i refer to as the ‘Burgundy/pink” one, but as you can clearly see it refuses to be tied down to just those colours.

In addition to the Burgundy i have a Lemon Yellow and an Orange and Gold lantana but i will save those photo’s for another FOTD.

All photos are in the natural colour, i have only cropped two images for better display and have not touched the hue or saturation of the originals.
