Gardeners' Notes:

Great way to add a colorful ground cover to a graveled desert landscape! Highly utilized throughout Las Vegas. Available in various colors with some tending to trail while others become more shrubby. Does lose leaves in winter but is a great opportunity to trim it back. Quickly regrows in the spring.

Lantana gives my front bed the artist's palatte that I was looking for all summer. I cut them back after first frost and was delighted to see them return the next spring/summer. They bloom and bloom and bloom. My lantana does spread out. Be careful of letting them cover up something else. I love to plant orange zinnias, yellow lantana, and red dahlias. My neighbors love it too!

Very pretty low spreading plant. Not as fast growing as the mult-colored plants buy just as hardy and colorful as any of them. I have grown this varitey for several years both in Texas and Tennessee and have not been disappointed.
