or Part Shade
well-drained soils - Very drought tolerant
this plant only in spring when new growth
begins to emerge from base of plant. Remove
all old stems by cutting back to a point where
new growth is beginning to emerge. Fall pruning
ensures death of the plant.
other plant we know of attracts more butterflies
than the lantana's! Most varieties of lantana
are annuals, however we've found a few over the
years that have shown to be exceptionally hardy.
The most hardy is 'Miss Huff's Hardy' which grows
to 6 feet in height and 10 feet or more in spread
and produces an abundance of tri-color yellow,
orange and pink flowers. 'Mozelle' and 'Pink Caprice'
grow to 3 feet in height and 4 feet in spread
and produce pink and yellow bi-color flowers.
'New Gold' and 'Gold Mound' are trailing varieties
which grow to 18 inches in height and 3 feet in
spread and produce solid yellow flowers. Lantanas
bloom profusely from late May to frost and are
exceptionally drought and heat tolerant!
Note: Do not prune lantana in fall as
this will insure death of the plant. Prune lantana
in spring when new growth begins to emerge from
the base of the plant.
