Lantana camara

No need to choose just one color as this compact 2-3’ high and 4-5' wide selection showcases yellows, pinks and reds all on the same plant throughout the Summer and Fall blooming period. Prized for its heat and drought tolerance and low maintenance, it forms an attractive compact mound of dark EVERGREEN foliage, making it ideal for tucking into smaller spaces or for use in a decorative container. It’s tough enough to use as a low border and its lightly fragrant flowers not only reward bees, butters and hummingbirds with nectar but small berries cling to the plant, providing Winter nutrition for local birds. Plant in fertile, well-drained soil and water regularly until established. Mulch late Fall to protect tender roots and cut out watering. Plants fill out and bloom more heavily in year two. Deer resistant.
