I have never had a high regard for Lantanas since they grow wild and can be seen by the side of the road. We have a wall surrounding the garden, on top of which I wanted flowering plants. The gardener planted Lantanas there, white and purple. And they are a joy to the eye, flowering all through the year.
And now I am adding to the collection with more colors…more happiness.
Few basic rules to growing lantanas
- Lantanas love sunlight. Plant them where they can enjoy lots of sunlight.
- They are quite hardy and can survive a couple of days without water.
- Prune them occasionally when you see the leaves blackening and fewer flowers
- Then can grow from stem cuttings, though I have to admit that it has not worked for me so far.
- Happy Lantana to you!
