One of my favorite plants, I plant this variety of lantana in the corners of my yard (full sun & sandy soil), and also in my butterfly garden (butterflies love this plant). In one corner of my yard, the lantana dies back every winter but returns in the early spring. Fast-growing, in no time the corner of my yard is a beautiful mound of yellow-gold flowers. Hardy, easy to grow & drought tolerant. Also loves Florida's high heat & humidity.

Obtained it from a trustworthy native nurseryman here in Palm Beach County. Not extremely long-lived, but the nectar drinkers love it.

I LOVE THIS PLANT! I LIVE IN HOT EAST TEXAS AND IT DOES REALLY WELL HERE. I USUALLY DO NOT HAVE TO WATER IT UNTIL LATE JUNE EARLY JULY. EVERY SPRING I TRIM IT BACK AND IT STARTS LEAFING OUT VERY SOON AFTER.

This plant is endemic to pine rocklands of southern Miami-Dade County, Florida. Material sold in the nursery trade appears to be low-growing, yellow-flowered cultivars and hybrids of Lantana camara, and not this endemic, endangered species. It is doubtfully in cultivation except by a few Florida native plant enthusiasts. Also, it is not poisonous as reported. Lantana camara, however, is very toxic to people and livestock.

An endangered native of south Florida, this is an evergreen, low growing shrub or groundcover. Like most Lantana it blooms all season. This is a marvlous nectar plant for butterflies.
