Design Ideas Landscapers 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 the pavement in stride. Put it in pots for powerful color on a deck or patio.
Flower Color Yellow
Foliage Color Variegated
Companion Plants Salvia (Salvia); Heliotrope (Heliotrope); Cordyline (Cordyline); Red Yucca (Hesperaloe); Hibiscus (Hibiscus)
CARE
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.
HISTORY
Lore Lantanas are valuable butterfly nectar plants and are equally appealing to hummingbirds.
