    Lantana montevidensis

    'Trailing White' is one of the trailing Lantanas, commonly known as a "weeping Lantana". Characterized by their more pronounced trailing habit than other "common Lantanas" that may trail some but have an overall shrubby, upright habit. 'Trailing White' is a beautiful mix of pristine white flowers and slightly lavender hues with bright yellow center eyes. A MUST for any butterfly garden, this magnet for pollinators produces tons of long lasting blooms.

    A tender perennial or annual in most Northern zones, Trailing White Lantanas are typically perennial in hot or tropic climates. Aromatic and beautiful, 'Trailing White' makes a perfect plant for hanging baskets or containers or as colorful ground cover. Cousins to Vervain and Lemon Verbena, the 'montevidensis', or trailing, side of the Lantana family is less common than the 'camaras' which include 'Dallas Red', 'Confetti' and 'Fuchsia'.

    Lantana montevidensis
     
    Characteristics: This is true white trailing lantana! These beautiful plants with white blooms look magnificent planted along walls, in window boxes, and hanging planters. Or try as a colorful border filler - this variety is less invasive than others. Perfect for zones 9-11.
     
    Light: Be sure to plant your lantanas in full sun. They will soak it up!
     
    Water: Although white lantanas are drought tolerant, their outstanding performance will be affected if they are too dry for too long - I recommend a thorough watering once a week. Remember to avoid overhead watering which can make plants more susceptible to diseases and root rot.
     
    Soil: Lantanas will thrive in soil with a pH from 6 to 7.8 (mildly acidic to mildly alkaline).
     
    Use: Attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, lantana is one of our longest-standing favorite flowers.
     
    Extras: A light clipping of tip growth will encourage repeat blooming - taking a fourth of the growth every once and again will help the plant flush. If you lightly fertilize newly cut back plants, they will return to bloom quickly.

    If you live in an area where lantanas are perennial, cut back hard in the early spring to remove old growth and prevent woodiness, to about 6 to 12 inches from ground level. DO NOT hard prune in the fall - this can cause reduced cold hardiness.

     

    For whatever reason, I think that it is hard to find a reliable white flower for a sunny summer border. Look no further! 'Trailing White Lantana' is a wonderful companion flower - we use it in many of our 'Plant Collections' that require a pristine, clean white flower that blooms profusely.
