Miss Huff Hardy Lantana
Lantana camara 'Miss Huff'
|Description||The most cold hardy lantana known - established clumps have survived temperatures as low as 0°F. An excellent choice for mass plantings, along hillsides, and in patio containers. Showy orange and pink flowers cycle during the warm season. Evergreen in mild winter regions; treat as an annual in cold winter regions.|
|Watering||Water deeply when soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Spring and summer; longer in frost-free areas|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 4 to 6 ft. tall and wide; larger in mild climates.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hillside|
|Design Ideas||This remarkably hardy perennial is an unparalleled source of quick foliage and flowers in warmer climates. 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. With its orange and pink flowers, this lantana is stunning in tropically inspired gardens.|
|Companion Plants||Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Hibiscus (Hibiscus); Heliotrope (Heliotropium); Jatropha (Jatropha); Mandevilla (Mandevilla)|
|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.|
