Patriot™ Rainbow Compact Lantana
Lantana camara 'Robpatrai'
|Description||A sensational small lantana with a continuous procession of vibrant multi-colored flowers. The warm combination of orange, bright pink, and yellow flowers adorn the dark green foliage nearly year-round in warmer climates, making it a superb choice for containers, mass plantings and borders. Evergreen in frost-free areas; treat as an annual elsewhere.|
|Watering||Water deeply when soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Spring and summer; longer in frost-free areas|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 12 in. tall, spreading to 15 in. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Edging, Hillside|
|Design Ideas||This is a uniquely small Lantana that offers multicolored flowers for small gardens. Use as accent color in planters, or line it up for a dense informal edging. Because it is heat resistant, it can spice up driveways and sidewalks for an instant front yard face-lift. Great size for containers and for use in urban courtyards.|
|Foliage Color||Dark Green|
|Companion Plants||Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia); Fountain Grass (Pennisetum); Heliotrope (Heliotrope); Indian Hawthorn (Raphiolepis); Pittosporum (Pittosporum)|
|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||Lantana 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.|
