Gardeners' Notes:

I have grown this as a container plant and overwinter it almost dry in unheated garage. It now grows slowly and does not flower well in my 2nd year. As a container plant, it is not as drought resistent as I hoped. Full sun is needed to flower better, but then medium watering is required.

Lantana does very well in our zone. Blooms are best spring to summer, loves hot dry spots. A very attractive deep yellow, looks great mixed in with my Radiation and Dallas Red. when takes up too much space or gets leggy, you can cut back hard, it will come right back.
