  Lantana plant
Lantana, large plant


Lantana is one of the most colorful and easy to grow plants in the desert Southwest.

The plant is a perennial, but will freeze back to ground level and return in the spring, if properly protected.

Leave the dead branches on the plant through-out the winter months to act as protection against the cold.

If you can't stand the look of all those dead branches, cut them back and mulch the area.

Containerized Lantana will probably need to be placed indoors, as it will freeze and not return.

Lantana flowers come in many different shades and the plant flowers all summer long.

Flowers are followed by small purpleish-black berries. Bees, butterflies and birds are attracted to Lantana.

All parts of the Lantana plant are poisonous if ingested.

Requires full sun and moderate water.

Lantana is an excellent choice for the desert landscape or garden and excellent in containers.
