    FAQs About Lantana Plants


    When does Lantana bloom?

    Lantana plants typically bloom from late spring through frost. In warmer climates, some Lantana varieties produce flowers all year. Therefore, it's essential to consider your location when looking for Lantana plants for sale online to see beautiful and vibrant blossoms in your garden.

    Does Lantana need full sun?

    Yes, Lantana plants thrive in full sun and require at least six hours of direct sunlight daily to produce vibrant blooms. They can tolerate some shade, but too much cover leads to leggy growth and reduced flowering. Additionally, Lantana plants prefer well-draining soil and accept drought conditions once established. 

    Can you grow Lantana in pots?

    Absolutely! Lantana plants can be grown in pots and make a great addition to any patio or balcony garden. Choose a container at least 12 inches deep and wide to accommodate the plant's root system. In addition, also ensure that the pot has drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating and causing root rot.

    Should I fertilize Lantana?

    It depends on where they are planted. Lantana placed directly in soil are not heavy feeders, but those grown in pots benefit from occasional fertilization. You can use a balanced fertilizer with equal amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium or a fertilizer formulated specifically for flowering plants. The best time to fertilize is early spring, just as new growth appears.

    Does Lantana need deadheading or pruning?

    Deadheading or removing spent flowers depends on the variety you are growing. The practice encourages more blooms for species that grow green or purple berries. No matter the type, Lantana plants benefit from occasional pruning to maintain their shape and promote bushier growth.
