Lantana 'Summer Popsicle'
Loves heat, humidity, and even puts up with drought!
You get 1 gorgeous trailing Lantana with multicolored blooms!
The name says it all! The vibrant colors and fresh citrus scent of this gorgeous cascading Lantana may carry you back to carefree summers of childhood, when your most pressing concern was which flavor of popsicle your quarter would purchase at the curb store! And "carefree" is a key element of this plant -- no annual is more long-blooming nor easier to grow for nonstop blooms all summer and into fall!
'Summer Popsicle' sports flowers of brightest yellow, orange, and red, shaped like tiny nosegays and very freely borne all over the plant. What's more, the bloom colors actually change as they mature, so that today's solid red blossom may be tomorrow's bicolor yellow-and-rose!
This is a trailing Lantana, splendid for containers of all types and also happy to sprawl in the garden. Famously easy, it thrives contentedly in any blazingly sunny, well-drained spot. The blooms begin as soon as the summer weather arrives, and just won't quit -- even in the hottest August afternoons, when most everything else in the garden looks a bit limp.
Rediscover the guiltless pleasure of lazy summer days with this gorgeous, no-fuss annual plant!
The Best Annual Plants come from Jackson & Perkins!
From patio tomatoes and sun-tolerant Impatiens to spreading Petunias, Jackson & Perkins is proud to offer a complete selection of flowering and vegetable plants of every description. We use the term ‘annuals’ to include tender perennials (half-hardy annuals) and tropicals, so some of the plants offered in this group will even return for several seasons of beauty in warm climates! Grown carefully, shipped quickly and safely, and ready to transplant easily into your garden or containers, our annual plants are the very best you will find. Your garden deserves nothing less!
The Perfect Pot for the Perfect Plant
This season you will find annual plants offered in one of two forms: either individually in larger pots or collectively in 6-packs.
Some plants are especially large and require individual pots, such as Angel’s Trumpets and Corkscrew Vines. But wherever possible, we have opted for 6-pack form, because it is so economical, allowing you to purchase more of the plants you love. And because they are packaged in biodegradable Elle Pots, there is no packaging waste—only healthy, strong root systems!
Elle Pots are actually fabric sleeves that allow air, light, and even plant roots to penetrate, maximizing the growth potential of your young plants. Each Elle Pot is 2 inches long, 2 ½ inches wide, and 3 inches deep. When you order a 6-pack, you receive six Elle Pots in a unit 7 inches long, 5 inches wide, and 3 inches deep.
You will find our Petunia, Calibrachoa, Coleus, Impatiens, Dahlia, Lisianthus, Geranium, Lantana, Mandevilla, Sweet Potato Vine, Dichondra, Persian Shield, Begonia, and every vegetable—Tomatoes, Eggplants, Peppers, and even Strawberries—sold in 6-pack Elle Pots.
The Best Plants Grow in the Best "Soil",
To get our annual plants off to the best possible start, our flowering and vegetable seedlings are grown in a custom blend of media that encourages quicker rooting, better branching, and more vigorous growth. A scientific approach to pH balance, plus the best environmental controls in our greenhouses, produces better root development and water uptake. The soilless media we use to prepare our plants for transplant into your garden or container ensures that they are healthy, robust, and ready to establish.
The Shipping’s a Breeze!
Our Garden Fresh Express Shipping ensures that every annual plant spends the minimum amount of time en route to your garden. We ship only by Express (2-day) shipping, yet you pay the more economical standard shipping rates! It’s a win/win: we know that our plants go from greenhouse to garden promptly and safely, and you know that you’re getting quality plants delivered to your door in premium conditions at a bargain price!
