Okay. So Lantana isn’t the name of a tropical storm (yet), but it is the name of a beautiful plant we would like to share information about with you today.
- Easy to grow and maintain.
- Have been long admired for their extended bloom time
- Can be treated as annuals or perennials.
- Great way to add color and interest to your landscaping
What’s the difference?
Perennials only need to be planted once and require less work. Annuals have to be replanted every year. However, they tend to produce more flowers and bloom for longer periods than perennials.
- Grow well in sunny location
- Require well-draining soil
- Plant Lantanas in the Spring, after the threat of cold weather and frost have ceased
- They prefer warm temperatures and will grow rapidly once it gets warmer
Care & Pruning Tips
- Newly planted Lantanas require frequent watering
- After they are established, a thorough soaking once a week will keep them beautiful and bouncy
- Encourage re-blooming by cutting the dead tips periodically
- Regular pruning of the Lantana takes place in the Spring
- If your Lantana is overgrown, cut back about a third of its growth and watch your plant flourish!
