One of my favorite plants. It requires very little maintenance and blooms from early spring into late fall. The leaves have a wonderful citrus scent. Once it starts to flower, it explodes in color. It is a fast grower and needs to be trimmed once or twice a year. Needs full sun, no shade. Once established, if you water it less, it will produce more flowers instead of the bright green leaves.

i love all of the lantana camara's, I don't mind the smell of the leaves, citrus like. Can use in beds, containers, hanging baskets or on slopes, i love the mixture of bright orange and yellow in the flowers, my mother used to grow them from seed, I haven't tried that yet. Here is zone 9 it flowers all year long, but best in summer.
