My lantana is usually one of the tough flowers in my garden. The butterflies and hummingbirds like lantana which is one of the reasons I grow it. I also like the way the leaves smell like oranges.
One of my favorite plants which don't start blooming until the end of summer are the fairy asters.
I have let them volunteer all over the garden. I do that with many plants I start from seed that then self seed and crop up in new spots.The butterflies and moths like the fairy asters. I like the way they form large masses that from a distance almost look like snow.
I have a lot of morning glories which I enjoy although some of them are growing on my roses and need to be pulled up.
The rose of sharon (hibiscus) is another tough plant I let volunteer all over the place.
Although they form bushes where they have enough room, I let them come up in places they don't have room to form shrubs.
