Design Ideas: Bush Lantana is the best source of quick foliage and flowers in warmer climates. Check your local climate zone to see if it is annual or perennial in your area. Landscapers have long used this fast-grower to fill in a young landscape for the first season or two until woody plants are established. A great color source for hot and dry gardens, along driveways and full sun banks. Plant in flower and shrub beds, raised planters, along fence lines and foundations, and in parkways, where they take the reflected heat from pavement in stride. Put it in pots for powerful color on a deck or patio but make sure you bring it in for the winter.

Thrives in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established in the landscape, reduce frequency; continue to water container plants regularly. 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.
