Hi, I am
Hi, my name is Thalia!
Plant experts call me the Lantana Camara. I am a special flowering buddy, as my flowers change color from the inside to the outside during bloom. With my yellow-orange flowers I am an eye-catcher in the garden. I am also a true bee and butterfly attractor. With me in your garden it is going to be a colorful party, guaranteed!
Originally I am from South America, but today I can also be found in Africa, Australia and India. These countries have an optimal climate, which causes me to grow so fast that I am considered more a weed than a plant. Unbelievable, isn’t it, with my beautiful flowers?
Where should you place me?
I like to be in a sheltered, light place. Be careful with the intense midday sun.
What do I like?
I like to get a sip of water regularly. I also like to get some fertilizer twice a month. Outside the flowering season, I need less water and no fertilizer.
Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
