History:
This hybrid was developed and introduced by Monrovia in 1990. It is derived from the trailing species, L. sellowiana, which is native to much of South America and has naturalized throughout the southern United States. It is most prevalent in southern California. This species is considered synonymous with L. montevidensis.
Lore:
Lantanas are valuable butterfly nectar plants and are equally appealing to hummingbirds.
