this grows over most of Texas and is a great no problem plant..it got down to the 18's this past winter and mine are blooming and happy..they do freeze back some but it doesn't seem to hurt the, I simply cut back the dead growth and transplant any limbs that have rooted.. mine grows aut 6-8 ft across and 2-3 ft tall and is loaded all summer with lemon yellow blooms. On the Gulf coast I grew the multicolored variety and it is common along levies in and around canals and waterways. An altogather trouble free plant.. Simply snip off seed heads to prevent seeding.. Personally , I can't get enough of it.

This plant is really pretty & I found it in my local nursery. It is pretty much like a regular Lantana plant but a lot more compact. I don't know yet if the seeds will be able to be harvested for next year. This is my first year with this particular Lantana. I like it because it's purple & makes a nice container plant.

Beautiful plant, but I doubt that it will become too invasive here in the US due to the colder areas we have. I got the Latana that I would honestly call "Fruity Pebbles" as it was yellow, orange, & red. Spectacular plant, but I was misled by the big box label and it croaked on our first frost.
Still love it, though!

Lantana such as these are classified as noxious weeds in Australia, after they were found to be extensively invading our bushland areas.. They were once available in nurseries everywhere in the 1980's but but they were banned in most areas after that. I was wondering, with their free-seeding habit, if they will become problem weeds in the US.
