LANTANA CONFETTI (STARTER PANT) Perennial Flowers
This is a fast growing, spreading perennial, treated as an annual in cooler areas. Flowers profusely throughout the summer, attracting butterflies. Leaves are 1 inch long, dark green, with coarsely toothed edges. The yellow, pink, and purple blooms appear in domed clusters, covering the plant from summer to frost. Thrives with full sun, low moisture and poor soil.
Lantana are fragrant natives of tropical regions in the Americas and Africa. These broadleaf evergreen shrubs are drought-hardy in landscapes and cold-hardy to slightly below freezing, so they can be grown as perennials in Florida and other warm regions.
Upright varieties are best grown in containers for landscape use, but they also work well in combination planters.
Trailing varieties are best suited for hanging baskets and cascading elements in combination planters. Adding lantana to your spring program will attract pollinators and customers alike.
