    Lantana Montevidensis
    Lantana 'Trailing Lavender' is a trailing Lantana, also known as " Weeping Lantana". It is a lovely wide-spreading Lantana with clusters of purple flowers that cascade over the sides of pots and containers, or spread out as a wonderfully colorful ground cover. Trailing Lavender blooms from Spring to frost and is a beautiful butterfly magnet.
    Each bloom is about an inch across, and the dark green, textured leaves are pungently aromatic when crushed. This wonderful annual for sun is outstanding in the heat of the summer, or in areas where heat and humidity are a challenge to any gardener. A fast growing plant, 'Trailing Lavender' can spread more than three feet and is considered less invasive than its cousin varieties, the common Lantanas.
    A relative of Lemon Verbena and Vervain, Lantanas prefer a semi tropical climate with lots of sunshine. Perennial in hot, humid climates, Lantanas tend to be annual in more Northern zones.

  • Lantana montevidensis
    Characteristics: This is true trailing lantana! These beautiful plants with lavender 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 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.
