Design Ideas: This vivid Lantana is an unparalleled source of quick foliage and flowers in warmer climates. Its coloring is just right for adding brilliance to the tropical-inspired landscape that will take some cold. These plants grow very fast to fill in a young landscape, or use as a single-season makeover plant. Very resilient in extreme heat, particularly reflected heat off driveways or street paving. A natural for filling sunny banks and slopes. Plant in flower and shrub beds, raised planters, along fence lines and foundations, and in parkways. Put them in pots for powerful color on a deck or patio with brightly blooming annual flowers.

Thrives in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established in the landscape, reduce frequency; continue to water container plants regularly, when soil surface becomes dry. Fertilize in spring. Remove spent blooms periodically and prune annually to shape.

History

Lantanas are valuable butterfly nectar plants and are equally appealing to hummingbirds. This is a large genus with over 150 species native to tropical regions of the Americas and Africa. L. camara is native as far north as Texas and southern Georgia but has naturalized elsewhere in the South. The genus name is the same as the South American name for the plants. Many of the contemporary varieties resulted from hybrids of this and L. montevidensis.
