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.
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.

In this tough time when whole world is stuck in there homes due to lockdown it would be wise decision to start over growing organic stuff at the home. I had been growing vegetables and fruits in my home garden from many years now and the Harvest obtained gives me so much satisfaction and pleasure along with refreshing taste.
