Lovely colour.
The name always reminds me of "Santana", a musician.

Thanks! :>))

Yes, it does. Santana's music always reminds of living in the San Francisco Bay Area...where Santana lived most of his adult life (I believe, even though he was born in Mexico).

I've been to his concert once, more than 10 years ago (in Tokyo) ♪

That sounds great! I've never been to a Santana concert even though I've had the opportunity a few times. I lived most of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he was based.

I don't think they can grow wild here in the UK but I wish they did if they often produce sights like this!

We can buy seeds of this plant & I think I've seen it on sale in a shop here many years ago. I've never grown it myself though.

On 2nd thoughts, after reading about it on Wikipedia, I'm glad it doesn't grow wild in the UK!

Lantana can be very invasive plant. It pops up a lot in my neighborhood. It pops up in many of my potted plants. The two large plants I have in my front yard were from the birds.

I had an old Sunset magazine where one had been trained into a standard. Had a good size trunk on a large potted tree-5'? Covered in bloom.
I've never once seen them sold like that.

I've seen many like that in the SF Bay Area. They get just as big there, as here.
