Fast-growing evergreen shrub to 2-4’ tall x 3-5’ wide. Can be pruned into a small patio tree. Lantana is a popular heat-tolerant low-maintenance perennial shrub revered for its free-blooming nature. This vigorous variety forms a rounded-mound of deep-green foliage cloaked in profuse clusters of multi-toned red orange and yellow flowers that appear primarily throughout summer or nearly year-round in mild climates. These butterfly-attracting flowers are followed by clusters of small deep-purple-colored berries that attract various species of birds. Versatile and well-suited in beds or borders as an accent hedge container specimen or mass planted for an eye-catching display of color. Considered drought tolerant once established but looks best with moderate watering. Prefers a well-drained soil and a full to partial sun exposure.
