This species has naturalized in 8 states. Unlike L. camara, which is one of the world's worst weeds, it does not appear to be ecologically invasive in the US.

We have Lantana White Lightening across out front slope facing north west. About 15' x 30'. It doesnt get enough sun so we dont get as many white flowers as we would like. It was planted about 5 years ago and has provided a good ground cover. This November, it is starting to have woody "holes" in the slope and I'm wondering if I should have the "holes" cut back . I have been reading on the net to wait until spring for that pruning. Any comments are appreciated.

This lovely white cultivar does not set seeds, so is continually in bloom in Florida.
