Thanks to Bob Snyder for sharing this deer-resistant hardy lantana he grows in his garden two hours west (colder) of PDN. Lantana 'Ham and Eggs' is an old, sterile cultivar that has been passed along in the Southeast for many years. Lantana 'Ham and Eggs' is topped from early summer until fall with flowers that open pink (RHS 73B) and then develop a central pattern of flowers which are cream with a golden eye...a summer delight for hummingbirds. Occasionally, there is a slight tinge of orange in the flower...a real show stopper!
