|Design Ideas||This 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.|
|Companion Plants||Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Cordyline (Cordyline); Heliotrope (Heliotrope)|
|Care||Thrives in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established in the landscape, reduce frequency; continue to water container plants regularly. Fertilize in spring. Remove spent blooms periodically and prune annually to shape.|
|Lore||Lantanas are valuable butterfly nectar plants and are equally appealing to hummingbirds.|
