Lantana are evergreen shrubs or perennials with corrugated, ovate foliage and domes of intriguing clusters of salver-shaped flowers that flourish in vibrant colours from late spring to autumn. Lantana are best suited to flower beds and borders within a coastal, cottage or informal garden setting. You should expect to see Lantana grow to an approximate height and spread of 1.5m (5’).
Lantana are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of sand, clay, chalk or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Choose a site that receives full sun or part shade. Amend the planting area by loosening the soil and mixing a generous amount of compost. Dig a hole that is twice the diameter of the root ball and place so that it is level with the soil surface. Once settled, firm the soil and water thoroughly.
Use compost to enrich the soil and feed in spring with a balanced organic fertilizer. Make sure you deadhead your Lantana once the blooms fade to keep the plant bushy and blooming. Provide a hard prune in spring down to 6-8” tall. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.
It is possible to propagate Lantana by semi-hardwood cuttings or seed during the in summer.
