Texas Lantana doing well in Needville Tx. I have two plants growing in back yard. A deep pink color with the inside being white. Both are 4 foot tall by 3 foot wide. Just water and cow manure is all I have done for them.

This was growing wild on the lot adjacent to our place, purchased the vacant lot and have found that the more attention it gets the faster and better it grows, we cut it back so we could clean the trash and leaf litter out and found it grew back amazingly fast. Also very easy to transplant. Literally, pulled it out by the roots, dug a hole, stuck it back in and watered it. Within 1 month could not tell it'd been touched.

I read that it is named *horrida* because the person who named it hated the pungent small of its leaves. I love it! Lantana will make a tall groundcover if you let it spread. If you want to curb it, then trim in back to 2" every winter after first frost when it dies back.

I have several varieties, I have the orange and yellow, the red and yellow, the yellow and the lavender. The lavender seems to be the only one that spreads all over the place. It is on a fence, and growing along the ground. They are all blooming and will be until the first frost. The lavender is far more low lying and bushy where as the others are upright and slow growing. Every year I cut the lavender to the ground and every year it spreads more.
