Bandana Lantana

These beautiful pink lantana flowers were found in the summer at a local nursery! They came in all sort of colors, but today I will only show the pink ones.

At first, I wasn't impressed with these flowers at all. I knew they were pretty, and very colorful, but I was looking for more exotic or unique flowers to shoot on that day.

However, after seeing a few frames of these lantana flowers in my camera, I felt in love with these little blooms. The pink color in particular was quite attractive to me.

Then I remembered as a kid, my friends and I used to pick each little flower and sucked its nectar from the root. This was one of those great memories as a child I had.

I hope to grow these flowers in the coming warm months. As I understand, this plant will continue to bloom throughout the summer, which will keep a very colorful garden for me.

This week, I want to introduce you to LemonyRenee at Of Lemon and Honey. Her last pink post was fantastically fun, and her blog is a joy to visit.

Thanks for being here!

  9. This IS a beautiful flower! I planted one last summer and it bloomed all the way up until our first frost. The blooms started out pink, but as they aged they turned different colors. I sometimes had a pink flower and an orange one on the same plant.

  10. It's always so much fun for me to travel from blog to blog on Pink Saturday. Each and every entry is different and each and every one makes me smile and feel all pink from the inside out☺
