Lantana 'Radiation' has been found to be one of the most attractive lantana cultivars for butterflies according to an Auburn University study.

"Butterfly Feeding Preferences among Cultivars of Lantana"

We have grown it as an easy care annual in our 6a garden.

One of my favorite lantana varieties. I just love the coloration of the blooms.

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.
