Botanical Pronunciationlan-TAY-na ca-MA-ra
LoreLantana naturalizes easily because the berries are relished by birds and spread over long distances where new plants readily germinate under arid conditions and thrive even while seedlings in brutal heat. This is also a vital nectar source for butterflies. Lantana and its fruit should be considered toxic to pets and children.
Average Size at MaturityModerate grower to 4 to 6 ft. tall and wide.
Bloom TimeContinuously in frost-free areas
Design IdeasPlant this Lantana in single specimens, small clusters of three to five or huge seas of them as groundcover. Plants flesh out a young landscape with color for the first season. A great color source for very hot and dry gardens, along driveways and on banks in full sun. Plant in flower and shrub beds, raised planters, along fence lines and foundations, and in parkways, where they take the reflected heat in stride. A great choice for late-summer color in cottage gardens and perennial borders. Put them in pots for powerful color on a deck or patio. This plant will freeze back or die over winter in colder regions.
