Lantana Care and Maintenance

 Lantana is one of the most attractive perennial grown in our region . It is an easy to maintain plant that can be grown in hot climatic regions.Although there are many varieties of Lantana grown around the world in my collection these four varieties have been successfully grown over the years.

                                                      



Care and Propagation 

Lantana is an easy plant to grow and can be propagated through cuttings in spring and monsoon season in our region.It does not require too much water to grow and can tolerate drought conditions up to certain level which makes it a hardy plant to grow in those areas which observe long summer months.

Fertilizer and maintenace

It should be protected from frost conditions and saved from direct heatwaves condition in summer.It doesn't require much fertilizer and can be grown in poor soil best grown in porous well drained soil.

  4. Your photos are beautiful. Lantana is regarded as a poisonous weed in Australia where I grew up and I can still imagine the smell of it when I hear the word. But the flowers are lovely, aren't they?

  7. Lantana grows well in north Texas too, and mine is beginning to spread, so it's time to put more in. Thanks for the inspiration. Lovely submission to Skywatch Friday, too.

  15. When we lived in a condo in Costa Mesa, Los Angeles, they had the bottom right lantana a landscaped in front of our kitchen like little hedge. Always so bright, but rather had the fragrance of the Gardenia a few condos down. Thank you for sharing these little bright flowers with All Seasons. Have a great week! Jesh
