Lantana camara

Lantana

One of the two species used in hybridizing. Coarse, upright grower to 6 ft. tall and wide. Rough dark green leaves; yellow, orange, or red flowers in 1–2-in. clusters. This has naturalized from Florida to Texas. In lowland areas of Hawaii, this species long ago escaped from cultivation and is considered a noxious weed; various insects that attack it have been imported in attempts to control it.

Lantana Luscious series Grape (photo courtesy of Proven Winners)

Lantana

Fast-growing tropical American natives with tiny flowers in tight clusters that look like miniature nosegays. Valued for a profuse show of color over a long season—every month of the year in frost-free areas. Light frosts merely keep plants in check. Heavier freezes may seriously damage or kill plants in some but not all winters. In colder zones, lantana is grown as a summer annual, typically used in containers, hanging baskets, and window boxes.
