Lantanas are popular bonsai plants, and are useful houseplants, too. They are distinctive for the numerous heads of small flowers, which often appear in three colors-yellow, orange, red-in a single cluster. Leaves are generally oval, with rounded teeth, and quite hairy on the under surface.
In the South, lant anas become very ornamental shrubs, but as a bonsai they are truly amazing. Ours have been trained to develop trunks and hardwood. The cuttings take root easily.
Grow in a cool room, with plenty of sun and moisture.
