These verbena-like flowers have long since been admired for their extended bloom time.
They can be grown in the garden or in containers and they are great to attract pollinators. Choose a sunny location and plant them in well-draining soil.
Lantanas are planted in spring once the threat of cold weather and frost have ceased. Keep in mind, however, that they prefer warm temperatures, so new growth may be slow to appear. Once the temperatures warm up though, they will grow abundantly. Newly planted lantanas require frequent watering, once established, these plants require little maintenance and are even tolerant of somewhat dry conditions. In fact, a good soaking about once a week should keep them relatively happy.
