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.
Avoid two conditions with lantanas — shade, particularly deep shade, and wet soil. In a bright, open location, they should flourish. A little soil amendment and a light mulch will help, but lantana is forgiving. Though plants endure dryness, don't forget to water them at least weekly, especially if it turns dry.
Lantana plants like full sun. The plant should receive at least six hours (or more) of direct sunlight every day. It can tolerate some afternoon shade but will flower less if planted in a shady spot.
