Lantana camara

SKU
43676
A compact shrub with a dense mound of green foliage that produces a non-stop show of red hot flower clusters throughout the heat of summer. The sterile blooms allow it to focus its energy on prolific blooming, making it a superb choice for containers, mass plantings, and borders. Evergreen in warm, frost-free climates; treat as a summer annual elsewhere.

Design IdeasThis vivid Lantana is an unparalleled source of quick foliage and flowers in warmer climates. Its coloring is just right for adding brilliance to the tropical-inspired landscape. These plants grow very fast to fill in a young landscape, or use as a single-season makeover plant. Very resilient in extreme heat, particularly reflected heat off driveways or street paving. A natural for filling sunny banks and slopes. Plant in flower and shrub beds, raised planters, along fence lines and foundations, and in parkways. Put them in pots for powerful color on a deck or patio with brightly blooming annual flowers.
