Design IdeasLandscapers 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.
Companion PlantsThis unique lantana belongs with bold warm season growers such as Orange Cape Honeysuckle, (Tecomaria capensis), Santa Barbara Mexican Bush Sage, (Savia leucantha 'Santa Barbara'), Flower Carpet Pink Groundcover Rose, (Rosa x 'Noatraum') and Blue Storm Lily of the Nile, (Agapanthus praecox orientalis 'ATIBlu').
Care Information

History:
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. This is the first variegated lantana developed and introduced by Monrovia.
Lore:
Lantanas are valuable butterfly nectar plants and are equally appealing to hummingbirds.
