We grow Lantana as an annual here in west KY, as it cannot be counted on to over-winter.

The flowers are so attractive to butterflies that we cannot do without it though.

This particular cultivar is an hybrid, and will not come true from saved seeds. That does not mean that it cannot produce seeds though. The seeds that are produced will just not resemble the parent in various ways.

You will still get Lantana plants, just not Florida Mound 'red'
