Lantana - ecstacy to some, agony to others.

in lantana •  last year 

Lantana ( Lantana camara ) is renowned as an invasive weed in many warm climate Countries, but there are several Dwarf or low-growing varieties, such as this Lantana camara "Landmark Yellow" and the Blue Lantana montevidensis, that are very useful plants in the landscape and garden. This Yellow Lantana grows to less than 1 metre tall, and is hardy once established and relatively pest free. It has a long flowering season, and is suitable for all temperate and warmer climates.

It was an early introduction elsewhere in the tropical world, where it soon escaped the confines of gardens and became a . L. camara is a prickly shrub, about 3-6 ft in height, with ovate rough leaves and almost continuous displays of blooms that appear as clusters made up of tiny florets. Orange or red-orange are the commonest colors, but there are cultivars with larger white, pink, or lemon-yellow flowers.

People like having Lantana in a garden because of the pungent smell of the leaves, and appreciate the reliable display of bright flowers. In Thailand, several colors are sometimes grafted onto a single trunk and the result trained into a standard. Lantana always prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Propagation is by air-layering or from woody cuttings.

Common lantana is a rugged evergreen shrub from the tropics. The species will grow to 6 ft (1.8 m) high and may spread to 8 ft (2.4 m) in width with some varieties able to clamber vinelike up supports to greater heights with the help of support.

The leaves are 2-5 in (5-12.7 cm) long by 1-2 in (2.5-5 cm) wide with rounded tooth edges and a textured surface. Stems and leaves are covered with rough hairs and emit an unpleasant aroma when crushed (smells like cat pee). The small flowers are held in clusters (called umbels) that are typically 1-2 in (2.5-5.1 cm) across. In the tropics lantana is a non-stop bloomer. Where it is killed to the ground by frost the lantana blooms in summer and fall.

Flower color ranges from white to yellow, orange to red, pink to rose in unlimited combinations, in addition the flowers usually change in color as they age. A lantana may look orange from a distance but the flowerhead is examined at close range it consists of individual white, yellow and red flowers that blend when viewed from afar.


Lantana is extremely easy to grow requiring little attention and is seldom bothered by pests or disease. It has low water requirements and can be used in xeriscapes and can handle the heat growing in containers and hanging baskets under sunny conditions. Lantana is a favorite species for butterflies and non-invasive lantanas should be a part of any butterfly garden.

Another lantana species that is also a popular garden plant is the weeping or trailing lantana Lantana montevidensis which is low growing trailing species that is particularly nice for hanging containers and groundcover.

Thank you! I will keep contributing to your posts. :)

The lantana plant is one of the most popular annuals used in gardens. They are favored because their blooms are long-lasting, they are easy to grow, and they thrive in most soil conditions. Deadheading is carried out to encourage continuous blooming and to prevent the growth of the berries. Some of the cultivated varieties (cultivars) of this plant grow to as much as 5 - 6 ft in height, forming large, bushy mounds, while others stay low and spread, reaching up to 4 ft in width, but only 1 - 2 ft in height.

Lantana is a genus consisting of more than 150 species of flowering plants in the Verbena family. The clusters of flowers borne by the lantana plants, called umbels, are a mix of red, orange, yellow, or blue and white florets. The flowers typically change color as they mature, resulting in a multicolored inflorescence. The flowers mature into toxic berries, which start off as green and turn black as they mature.

Growing and Caring for a Lantana

  • Lantana are fast-growing, evergreen shrubs. These plants grow well in most soil conditions, but they prefer slightly acidic soil.
  • They do well in hot climate and do not need much watering. Moist, fertile, and well-drained soil are the best choices for them.
  • Seeds should be sown in the spring, but it can also grow well from semi-ripe cuttings in summer.
  • A balanced liquid fertilizer should be sprayed once a month during the growing period.
  • Deadhead the plant as and when required. Indoor-grown varieties require extensive pruning in late winter.

Lantana camara is a species of flowering plant in the verbena family, that is native to the American tropics. It has been introduced into other parts of the world as an ornamental plant and the Lantana camara ended to be considered an invasive species in many tropical and sub-tropical areas. It can be seen in the wild and along footpaths, deserted fields, and farms
images (1).jpeg
If you haven’t heard the news, the Lantana flower has grown up a lot and is no longer the fairly invasive, considered by some to be “a weed”, albeit a beautiful one, that it used to be. The careful cultivation of this semi-tropical plant that is native to the more tropical regions of Africa and the Americas has resulted in hybrids which have evolved to include those that can be potted
images.jpeg

Lantanas like splendid and full sun, and flourish in any sort of soil which is a genuine in addition to for poor cultivating locales. You can skip waterings, yet when you do water, you will need to do as such completely. They have been known to wind up obtrusive in a few atmospheres, yet I genuinely can't picture it myself. In the event that they developed all the more completely in my garden, at that point I would love that. They emit such excellent little blooms that I simply cherish them, as do the butterflies. Lantanas draw in an extensive variety of butterflies.

Lantana is native to tropical regions of North and South American and Africa. Its berries are edible when ripe, but toxic while still green. The leaves are also toxic to animals and humans if ingested.

Lantana camara is a native to tropical regions and exists as dozens of strains and varieties that are highly variable in appearance. Although common lantana it is not native to Florida, it has been naturalized in the state for centuries (I wonder how many centuries it takes before a plant is considered native?)

Lantana is very easy to grow and will adapt to most soil types. Too much water and fertilizer will reduce bloom.By seed or cuttings taken in the summertime. Lantana hybrids and named selections are propagated by cuttings.

Lantana will add vibrant long-lasting color to shrub groupings. This is a fast growing shrub that is quick to flower so gardeners in cold climates can enjoy this tropical plant as an annual. Lantana tolerates salt spray and can be used in beach plantings.

Pets have reportedly become ill after ingesting lantana. The unripe berries are known to be very toxic and the foliage toxic to livestock. Lantana is listed as a Category I invasive exotic species by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council, which means that it is known to be "invading and disrupting native plant communities in Florida."

Lantana, a wonderful flower:-
One of my all time favorite reasons for growing lantana is that they are an amazing butterfly magnet! Butterflies cannot seem to resist lantana to the degree that where you see lantana growing on a warm day, you will also see butterflies enjoying their nectar. That is a win win for me!

Butterfly-on-Lantana-Tesselaar.jpg

The native habitat for Lantana is in tropical and subtropical both North and South America. They will grow on the margins of forests, and in disturbed sites. They can be very hardy and survive even intense heat once established.

Lantana, or shrub verbena, grow as an evergreen or deciduous shrub. They do best in zones 9 and 10 or in Sunset's zones 12 & 13, and 15-22. You can find many colors of this flower now more than ever. From pale colors to the more bold colors. The intensity of the colors can change as the flower matures as well. You will find the colors red, orange, yellow, pinks and purples even now.

One thing I have found to keep the blooms coming, it to occasionally trim back the plant. When flowers fade, I do a form of dead heading the flowers, so they will produce more.

bac9d18454dede6bfdacf4c7e8f5df07e07c4bf6.jpg

When initially planting your lantana, follow the directions closely. I also apply a liquid flower fertilizer in the summer sometimes, especially for my potted plants. The only down side I have with this flower, is the need to replant every year, because where I live they can't survive the winter.

Deadheading spent flowers will encourage additional blooming and will prevent the growth of toxic berries. You heard it, it prevents its toxicity, which means there is no need to worry if your toddler has eaten berries or leaves from Lantana camara, a plant found in flower beds across the southern U.S. and other balmy parts of the world according to Forbes magazine. However, It might be toxic to cattle, which might end up downing a lot of it when grazing.

Lantana 'Dallas Red' has a great show of fiery red, orange and yellow flowers which are irresistible to hummingbirds, butterflies and other useful pollinators. The brilliant blooms tend to turn red with age, but remain constant bloomers in zones with hot climates. A relative of Vervain and Lemon Verbena, this bold variety can be very invasive and is prohibited in some states because of this tendency.

Though a very attractive plant, 'Dallas Red' as well as many other Lantana varieties are poisonous if ingested by humans or animals. In most cases, livestock or children fall victim to the plant's toxins when garden clippings are tossed into pastures or kids are enticed by its red and orange berries. Symptoms include upset stomach, sluggishness and in severe cases, paralysis.

An exceptional plant that is long-lasting, long-blooming and so easy to grow!

Uses: A more compact growth habit than other varieties, 'Dallas Red' produces fiery red, orange and yellow clusters. A stunning show stopper in the garden, planting Dallas Red Lantana will attract multitudes of hummingbirds and butterflies! Though toxic, some cultures have used this medicinally to treat wounds.

Tips: A constant bloomer in hot climates, 'Dallas Red' is resistant to deer, salt, heat and drought.

Lantana camara is a nice looking plant.Lantana camara, also known as big-sage (Malaysia), wild-sage, red-sage, white-sage in(Caribbean) and tickberry in (South Africa).dba4f70fc0904fb28edcba50d2776929--flowers-in-bloom-lantana-flowers-in-pots.jpg
Lantana camara, often planted to embellish gardens, has spread from its native Central and South America to around 50 different countries.Lantana camara will often outcompete other more desirable species, leading to a reduction in biodiversity. It can also cause problems if it invades agricultural areas as a result of its toxicity to livestock as well as its ability to form dense thickets which if left unchecked can greatly reduce the productivity of farm land.images.jpgIt attract different kinds of birds and insects.
Toxicity:Lantana camara is known to be toxic to livestock such as cattle, sheep, horses, dogs and goats.
Biological:Insects and other biocontrol agents have been implemented with varying degrees of success in an attempt to control L. camara. It was the first weed ever subjected to biological control, however none of the programs have been successful despite 36 control agents being used across 33 regions.
Chemical:Using herbicides to manage L. camara is very effective but also expensive.
Uses:Lantana camara stalks have been used in the construction of furniture, such as chairs and tables; however, the main uses have historically been medicinal and ornamental.
Its a very useful plant.

The growing and care of lantanas (Lantana camara) is easy. These verbena-like flowers have long since been admired for their extended bloom time.

There are several varieties available that offer a multitude of colors. Depending on the region and type grown, lantana plants can be treated as annuals or perennials. Grow lantana flowers in the garden or in containers. Trailing varieties can even be grown in hanging baskets. Lantanas also make a great choice for those wishing to attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden. Lantana-Dallas-Red-Plant.jpgpinkberry-lantana-400x400.jpg

How to Grow Lantana Flowers ;

Growing lantana in the garden is a great way to add color and interest. Simply choose a sunny location and plant them in well-draining soil. Although these plants are tolerant of many soil conditions, lantana flowers prefer slightly acidic soil. Mulching with pine needles is an easy way to raise pH levels in areas with low acid. 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 abundantlybee-367161_960_720.jpg

Lantana is a heavily branched shrub having bright green leaves, about 6cm long, with round toothed edges, grow opposite one another along stem.

Flowers vary in colour from pale cream to yellow, white, pink, orange, red, lilac and purple, about 2.5cm in diameter. Fruits are glossy, rounded, fleshy, purplish-black when ripe.

It grows in wide variety of habitats, from exposed dry hillsides to wet, heavily shaded gullies.

Native to tropical and subtropical regions of Central and South America, lantana is a heavily branched shrub that can grow as compact clumps, dense thickets, and scrambling and climbing vines. It can smother native vegetation and form impenetrable stands.

Lantana covers 5 million hectares throughout most coastal and hinterland areas of Australia, from north Queensland to southern New South Wales and including the Northern Territory and Western Australia. Lantana could also spread to Victoria. source

Forest Lantana

I'm a woman who likes lantana flowers but is a little lazy to take care of her.
So far I have not found it too difficult to find a flowering but ineffective plant as I wanted.
IMG_20180423_090020.JPG
One of my favorite flowers is the Lantana flower. Lantana is called a crop of a million sangking people easily find lantana. But clearly Lantana proved to be able to add vibrant gardens and gardens with an attractive interest. The colors of Lantana flowers are quite varied, from purple, yellow, white and red, there are also some types with a combination of white-yellow or white-magenta. Terms of growth is also easy, enough water and direct sun heat. Fertilization can be done once a month with NPK.
IMG_20180423_090100.JPG
Originally Lantana comes from the mainland of America, then spread throughout the world to reach Indonesia. Do not know exactly when to get to Indonesia.
IMG_20180423_085958.JPG
In Indonesia, Lantana is often called the flower because of the aroma of the leaves leu a langu and less savory if the hand touch. So, just look at it :) Lantana grows well in the highlands to the hot lowlands.
IMG_20180423_090045.JPG
To my knowledge there are 2 types of plants Lantana, the first is Lantana that grows shrubs, while the second is Lantana that grows creeping.
IMG_20180423_085856.JPG
Lantana bushes can grow up to 2 meters in height. Generally Lantana this type of shrub bush thorns, which although not very large thorns, but nyebelin also kalo until handed. Lantana type creep grows elongated but can not climb / propagate. Mostly used for cover crops. In addition it can also be used as a hanging plant, growing dangling ornaments with beautiful flowers.
IMG_20180423_085839.JPG
Currently practically Lantana is a plant mainstay decorate my garden. While other plants are lying helplessly against the white lice attack, the Lantana remains gloriously free from the disruptive pests of that one.
IMG_20180423_090007.JPG
But there are some things to watch out for from Lantana. Lantana can become a pest plant if its growth is not controlled. In addition to easy to grow alias minimal maintenance, Lantana bush is also fast growth.
IMG_20180423_085908.JPG
One more thing, the fruit of the Lantana plant includes poisonous fruit. Young fruit plants lantana green color, which will change color to black after the old. The poison is found in young fruit, so do not eat it. :)
IMG_20180423_090028.JPG
To multiply, Lantana can be grown from seed or from stem cuttings. Multiply from seed is usually more difficult and more time-consuming when compared with propagation by stem cuttings. Lantana sold in stalls of ornamental plants usually comes from propagation by stem cuttings.

Image by Yeonghason Lantana is a tough plant that thrives in bright sunlight, drought, and punishing heat. Don’t let the toughness fool you though, as lantana, available in a wide range of bright colors, is extremely beautiful and highly attractive to butterflies. This tropical plant is perennial for growing in USDA plant hardiness zones 8 and above, but is widely grown as an annual in cooler climates. It works well in borders and flower beds, and smaller varieties look great in containers. Lantana thrives without a lot of attention, and when it comes to fertilizing lantana plants, less is definitely more. Read on to learn about feeding lantana plants.

1200px-LantanaFlowerLeaves.jpg

Lantana Bandana Pink (2).JPG

Feed in-ground lantana plants in early spring, using a dry fertilizer. Lantana isn’t picky but, in general, the best fertilizer for lantanas is a good quality, balanced fertilizer with a NPK ratio such as 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.
Lantana plant in containers need regular fertilization, as any nutrients in the potting mix are quickly depleted. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in spring, then supplement with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two to four weeks.

L_camara_Gold-blooms.jpg

Don’t overfertilize lantana. Although fertilizer may create a lush, green plant, the lantana is likely to be weak and will produce very few blooms. Always water deeply after fertilizing. Watering distributes fertilizer evenly around the roots and prevents scorching.

Lantana, genus of more than 150 shrubs native to tropical America and Africa and belonging to the verbena family (Verbenaceae), order Lamiales. Common lantana (L. camara), growing to 3 metres (10 feet) tall, is a weed in tropical America, but elsewhere it is much used as a garden plant.

It blooms almost continuously with yellow, orange, pink, and white flower heads in various colour combinations. The aromatic leaves are rough and oval.

Trailing lantana (L. montevidensis), from South America, is a small-leaved, drooping, thinly branched species that bears rose-lavender flowers. Other species are variously known as yellow sage, weeping (or trailing) lantana, and polecat geranium.

Lantana camara is rarely found in natural or semi-natural areas of forest as it is unable to compete with taller trees due to its lack of tolerance for shade, and instead grows at the forest edge. Lantana camara can survive in a wide range of climatic conditions, including drought, different soil types, heat, humidity and salt. It is also relatively fire tolerant and can quickly establish itself in recently burnt areas of forest.

Lantana camara is considered to be a weed in large areas of the Paleotropics where it has established itself. In agricultural areas or secondary forests it can become the dominant understorey shrub, crowding out other native species and reducing biodiversity.The formation of dense thickets of L. camara can significantly slow down the regeneration of forests by preventing the growth of new trees.

Lantana seed set varies considerably. If you see a lot of berries developing you may want to deadhead the plants to help with continuous blooming. If there is low berry set, deadheading shouldn't be necessary for continuous bloom. Some varieties are self-cleaning.
Lantana camara is a small perennial shrub which can grow to around 2 m tall and form dense thickets in a variety of environments. Due to extensive selective breeding throughout the 17th and 18th Centuries for use as an ornamental plant there are now many different L. camara cultivars...

Lantana is Australia’s invasive weeds. Lantana is also highly toxic to humans & animals, and can cause serious illness and death. All parts of the plant, particularly the green berries, are poisonous if ingested, causing vomiting, diarrhoea, muscular weakness and respiratory distress. The plant is also a skin and eye irritant.
Beautiful but dangeous..FB_IMG_1524449403137.jpg Lantana camara
Lantana camara, commonly known as big-sage in Malaysia, wild-sage, red-sage, white-sage in the Caribbean islands; and tickberry in South Africa, is a species of flowering plant belonging to the Verbenaceae family.
The name Lantana derives from the Latin name of the wayfaring tree Viburnum lantana, the flowers of which closely resemble Lantana.

Lantana camara is native tropical regions in Central America and South America. However, it has naturalized in many parts of the world; mainly in the tropical and sub-tropical regions.
FB_IMG_1524449504667.jpgThis flowering plant with such beautiful flowers is however a notorious pest. The eradication of these plants is very difficult and costly too. Once the Lantana camara establishes itself in an ecosystem, it makes it unfit for other plants and the native flora are quickly exterminated, as they cannot survive the competition with Lantana camara. FB_IMG_1524449473426.jpg Lantana is a genus of about 150 species of perennial flowering plants in the verbena family, Verbenaceae. They are native to tropical regions of the Americas and Africa but exist as an introduced species in numerous areas, especially in the Australian-Pacific region. The genus includes both herbaceous plants and shrubs growing to 0.5–2 m (1.6–6.6 ft) tall. Their common names are shrub verbenas or lantanas. The generic name originated in Late Latin, where it refers to the unrelated Viburnum lantana. FB_IMG_1524449369671.jpg thanks to sharing for your good post again.my dear friend. @ctrl-alt-nwo

Lantana plants can be grown as evergreen perennials in USDA planting zone 8 and higher. These flowers are not native to Florida but have become naturalized there and are widespread. In fact, the shrubs are considered invasive plants there and in certain other warm regions. In more northerly zones, they are treated as annuals.
2018-04-23_211106.png

They are known for their rounded clusters of small, brightly-colored flowers. The flowers may be yellow, orange, white, red and purple, and often colors are mixed within the same cluster, creating a bicolored effect. Most people dislike the smell of the flowers. But the aroma of their foliage qualifies them as fragrant plants, in the view of some gardeners. The leaves smell, in fact, like citrus.

Lantana make really good Bonsai trees if you can find one with a big trunk. Finding one with a big trunk is hard to do outside of Florida. I do think it is possible to grow a small Lantana up if you can keep it alive over the winter. They do grow well under florescent lights in colder areas of the states. I keep mine directly under a large double t8 florescent light. I use an orchid fertilizer all winter, 1 scoop per gallon of water of this product: RePotMe Fertilizer. I have had the following Lantana since 2009 and have let the branches grow all winter long and pinch the flower buds off all winter long. In the spring the branches have been chopped back. After 7 years I feel the branches are big enough that I do not have to let it grow out any more and will keep it trimmed back this year. Lantana love to be re-potted. If your Lantana is wilting after watering, then you need to do an immediate re-potting session and cut back the branches. It should respond back with new growth.

Growing lantana in the garden is a great way to add color and interest. Simply choose a sunny location and plant them in well-draining soil. Although these plants are tolerant of many soil conditions, lantana flowers prefer slightly acidic soil. Mulching with pine needles is an easy way to raise pH levels in areas with low acid. 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.

Lantana is a beautiful wild plant that evoke the memories of wild tropical field, it grows in almost all tropical and subtropical parts of South America, Africa, Australia, North America and South East Asia. In most of the tropical countries it is an invasive plant and considered as weed. Still, it is grown for its colorful flowers that release seductive fragrance, more intense in the evening. Fragrance of lantana depends on the variety you are growing, hybrid varieties are more fruity and mildly scented. Lantana flowers also attract bees, butterflies and nectar feeding birds.

lnt_banchry_main.jpg

Lantana Montevidensis is native to South America, and is characterized by white, purple or lavender colored scented flowers. If given support it can grow as a climbing vine and without support as groundcover.
It can be grown in pots with other upright growing plants on which it can climb or in hanging basket for dangling effect.

Lantana comes from the verbena family of plants. Lantana is an evergreen vining shrub. It is one of several plants that are recommended if you want a desert plant that lives well in a desert climate. It is perennial, meaning you will only need to plant it once. You can get pale yellow, bright yellow, orange, pink and purple varieties. The nice thing about using lantana is that it flowers pretty much all year long.

Some species of lantana are considered an invasive species. For instance, a common species, Lantana camara (also called Spanish flag) easily invades ecosystems and often forms in dense thickets. It can quickly dominate and suppress the growth of native plants, turning forest communities into shrublands.

It has become a serious economic pest in the citrus groves of Florida because it can reduce the crop yield.

Wow fantastic garden . wonderful work. i like this Lantana trees and flowers

Loading...

Lantana is a beautiful, easy to grow garden plant. It’s tough, drought tolerant, long blooming, and attracts butterflies. Its lovely clusters of flowers come in a variety of colors, sometimes with multiple colors mixed together.
There are over 150 species of lantana, from trailing groundcovers to 6-foot tall shrubs. A cousin to verbena, lantana is native to the tropics, where it grows as a perennial or shrub.

Lantana foliage feels coarse and rough, with a pungent scent. Some varieties of lantana produce pretty (but poisonous!) purple berries while other sterile varieties skip the berries in favor of more blooms.

Facts about the Lantana Flower

Lantana, or shrub verbena, grow as an evergreen or deciduous shrub. They do best in zones 9 and 10 or in Sunset's zones 12 & 13, and 15-22. You can find many colors of this flower now more than ever. From pale colors to the more bold colors. The intensity of the colors can change as the flower matures as well. You will find the colors red, orange, yellow, pinks and purples even now. They don't like frost, and will happily bloom until frost in many areas. In frost free areas, they can bloom all year if some care is taken.lantana_camara_04s.JPG

Lantanas like bright and full sun, and thrive in almost any kind of soil which is a real plus for poor gardening sites. You can skip waterings, but when you do water, you will want to do so thoroughly. They have been known to become invasive in some climates, but I honestly cannot picture it myself. If they grew more fully in my garden, then I would love that. They give off such beautiful little flowers that I just love them, as do the butterflies. Lantanas attract a wide range of butterflies.o.20864.jpg

There is a kind of lantana that is more of a trailing variety. The trailing variety is called L. montevidensis. They make a good ground cover with more rosy/lilac colored flowers. You can find many cultivars of both kinds of lantana. The colors of the reds and orange balance and compliment the rich green of the leaves. I would definitely recommend them for gardeners everywhere, even beginner gardeners love these.1.jpg

One thing I have found to keep the blooms coming, it to occasionally trim back the plant. When flowers fade, I do a form of dead heading the flowers, so they will produce more.HER-LAN05-2.jpg

WOOD MINING (LANTANA)

They are leafless and always green. There are eye-catching flowers. There are more than 150 species of tree minerals spreading across Asia, Africa and America. Most of the year they are flowers. It is therefore a precious landscape material. These warm-loving plants remain green in places that are not frosted. In cold climates they become seasonal. It's fast-growing ones. It is a solution for such problematic places by covering to hot, stony and weak soil. It is used abundantly in my Southern region.

You can use it in flower baskets and as a dwarf fence. Tree Minerals are easy to maintain and require very little irrigation and fertilization. In spring and autumn, strong pruning provides a beautiful form and plenty of flowering. Although there are two most known and used species, they have many different flower colors and plant form hybrids. They are made of steel. After the pruning, put the remaining plants 10-15 cm in length into the appropriate peat-perlite mixture. Establish a regular irrigation period. Over time it will show rooting. Then surprise you when you want.

Lantana is a Weed of National Significance. It is regarded as one of the worst weeds in Australia because of its invasiveness, potential for spread, and economic and environmental impacts.

lantana-camara-n1.jpg

Lantana_camara-Silent_Valley-2016-08-14-001.jpg

Lantana is a serious threat to biodiversity in several World Heritage-listed areas including the Wet Tropics of northern Queensland, Fraser Island and the Greater Blue Mountains. Numerous plant and animal species of conservation significance are threatened. It is listed as the most significant environmental weed by the South-East Queensland Environmental Weeds Management Group.

There are two main forms of lantana in Australia: a cultivated form planted in gardens and a weedy variety found in bushland and pastures.Butterflies, bees and other insects are attracted by the nectar and pollinate lantana flowers. About half of the flowers produce seeds, typically 1–20 seeds on each flower head.

Plant taxonomy classifies lantana plants as Lantana camara. Various cultivars are sold, including the 'Spreading Sunset' cultivar, which has a flower head with gold centers surrounded by orange. This orange color later fades to pink.Lantana-Dallas-Red-Plant.jpg

Lantana plants are evergreens of the broadleaf variety. Although they may act a little like vines, they are classified by botanists as, technically, shrubs. But because of the vine-like appearance of their branches, they are often grown in hanging pots, in which their branches are allowed to spill over the sides.

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones, Plant Characteristics, Growing Tips
Lantana plants can be grown as evergreen perennials in USDA planting zone 8 and higher. These flowers are not native to Florida but have become naturalized there and are widespread. In fact, the shrubs are considered invasive plants there and in certain other warm regions. In more northerly zones, they are treated as annuals. 49070a952dbd078b6f56a5c095a2e626.jpg

They are known for their rounded clusters of small, brightly-colored flowers. The flowers may be yellow, orange, white, red and purple, and often colors are mixed within the same cluster, creating a bicolored effect. Most people dislike the smell of the flowers. But the aroma of their foliage qualifies them as fragrant plants, in the view of some gardeners. The leaves smell, in fact, like citrus.Lantana-camara.jpg

Lantana plants can reach 6 feet high (with a spread of 8 feet) in a Florida landscape. They are salt-tolerant, making them popular in beach communities.

They are also drought-tolerant once mature. Grow lantana in full sun. These flowers want well-drained ground but will tolerate poor soils.pinkberry-lantana-400x400.jpg

They are sometimes called "verbena bushes", although nurseries selling them in hanging baskets do make a distinction between lantana plants and verbena (the latter also being a popular plant for hanging pots

Another smart work by @ctrl-alt-nwo sir...
Lantana_camara_(72).jpg
Lantana camara is a small perennial shrub which can grow to around 2 m tall and form dense thickets in a variety of environments.Due to extensive selective breeding throughout the 17th and 18th Centuries for use as an ornamental plant there are now many different L. camara cultivars.

Lantana camara has small tubular shaped flowers which each have four petals and are arranged in clusters in terminal areas stems. Flowers come in many different colours including red, yellow, white, pink and orange which differ depending on location in inflorescences, age, and maturity.After pollination occurs the colour of the flowers change (typically from yellow to orangish, pinkish, or reddish), this is believed to be a signal to pollinators that the pre-change colour contains a reward as well as being sexually viable, thus increasing pollination efficiency.

The leaves are broadly ovate, opposite, and simple and have a strong odour when crushed.

L. camara is a highly variable ornamental shrub, native of the neotropics. It has been introduced to most of the tropics and subtropics as a hedge plant and has since been reported as extremely weedy and invasive in many countries. It is generally deleterious to biodiversity and has been reported as an agricultural weed resulting in large economic losses in a number of countries. In addition to this, it increases the risk of fire, is poisonous to livestock and is a host for numerous pests and diseases. L. camara is difficult to control. In Australia, India and South Africa aggressive measures to eradicate L. camara over the last two centuries have been largely unsuccessful, and the invasion trajectory has continued upwards despite control measures. This species has been the target of biological control programmes for over a century, with successful control only being reported in a few instances.

Evergreen perennials in hot regions, they are more often grown just for the summer months in colder climates. The purple variety (L. montevidensis) is even more vine-like than the rest, and, consequently, it is a better hanging plant.

Northerners sometimes wonder if they can be taken indoors in fall and overwintered as houseplants. The answer is yes and no. Yes, they can be overwintered inside, but they do not thrive as houseplants. It is better to place them in an unheated room for the winter and keep them in a dormant state, providing just minimal light and water. The temperature of the room should not dip much below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Caring for Lantana Plants While 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. Although it isn’t required, lantana plants can be given a light dose of fertilizer each spring, but too much may inhibit their overall flowering. To encourage reblooming, cut the tips (deadhead) periodically.

Overgrown plants can be given new life by cutting back a third of their growth. They will bounce back quickly. Regular pruning of the plant usually takes place in spring.


Common Problems with Growing Lantanas While lantanas are not affected by too many problems, you may encounter them on occasion. Powdery mildew can become a problem if the plant is not given enough light. In addition, the plant may develop root rot if it is kept too wet. Sooty mold is a condition that causes black discoloration on the leaves and is most often attributed to insect pests, such as whiteflies. Other common pests that affect lantana plants include lace bugs, which cause the foliage to turn gray or brown and then drop off.

Lantana is a genus of about 150 species of perennial flowering plants in the verbena family, Verbenaceae. They are native to tropical regions of the Americas and Africa but exist as an introduced species in numerous areas, especially in the Australian-Pacific region. The genus includes both herbaceous plants and shrubs growing to 0.5–2 m (1.6–6.6 ft) tall. Their common names are shrub verbenas or lantanas. The generic name originated in Late Latin, where it refers to the unrelated Viburnum lantana.
220px-LantanaFlowerLeaves.jpg
Lantana's aromatic flower clusters called umbels are a mix of red, orange, yellow, or blue and white florets. Other colors exist as new varieties are being selected. The flowers typically change color as they mature, resulting in inflorescences that are two- or three-colored.
Lantana-Violet.jpg
"Wild lantanas" are plants of the unrelated genus Abronia, usually called "sand-verbenas".

This is a very beautiful plant.It look's nice in the garden.
Botanical Name of the plant is Lantana camara var. aculeata.This plant also known as Lantana scabrida, Camara vulgaris, wild sage, red-flowered sage, and largeleaf lantana are similar.2005_0102portcharles0032.JPG
It is from tropical America.It looks like Smelly scrambling evergreen shrub to 4-5 m with woody taproot with laterals that sucker when broken. Young stems are 4-angled, hairy and prickly, and older stems are rounded, woody, much branched, and brittle. Hairy, ovalish leaves (3-9 cm long) in opposite pairs along the stems, very wrinkled, and have toothed edges.2007_0607northland070029.JPG
There are some similar species: Other L. camara cultivars and crosses. Lantana montevidensis is low growing or prostrate, has smaller leaves and purple or white flowers, and is occasionally weedy.
What damage does it do?:Totally smothers and replaces all other species on the ground, causing permanent loss of habitat.2006_0107northland0111.JPG
What can you do to get rid of it?:Remove small infestations first.
Spray (best in November-December): glyphosate (100ml/10L + penetrant) or Tordon Gold (10ml/L).Cut down and paint stump (all year round): glyphosate (200ml/L).
2006_0723northland10037.JPG
Don't replant for two years after all plants destroyed.Seed longevity usually low. Replant with dense cover and constantly check for new seedlings. That's all from me.

How To Grow and Care For Lantana Trees

The lantana plant, a bright, sun-loving plant producing flowers in abundance and rewarding you with lots of color. Mastering lantana care is not difficult. Made to order for any bright patio with lots of sun. Lantana’s are basically tropical plants requiring lots of warmth.HER-LAN05-2.jpglantana_camara_04s.JPG

Plant them in your outdoor garden as soon as all danger of frost is past. In warm areas where frost seldom if ever occurs, the lantana’s can grow all year in the garden. Where they will flower constantly, attract hummingbirds, perfect for the butterfly garden and need only occasional trimming.

lantana plant care

Lantana Plants Verbena Relatives

Lantanas belong to the verbena family. They grow much taller than the well-known annual verbena, but the small clusters of tubular blooms on this flowering plant look similar, and they bloom as freely. Lantana flowers come in red, orange, yellow, white, pink or lavender.1.jpg

One variety with yellow flowers turns orange as they age and creates striking bicolor effect.Lantana-camara.jpg

The developing and care of lantanas (Lantana camara) is simple. These verbena-like blossoms have since a long time ago been respected for their expanded sprout time. There are a few assortments accessible that offer a huge number of hues. Contingent upon the locale and sort developed, lantana plants can be dealt with as annuals or perennials. Develop lantana blooms in the garden or in holders. Trailing assortments can even be developed in hanging bushels. Lantanas additionally settle on an awesome decision for those wishing to pull in butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden.

Developing lantana in the garden is an incredible method to include shading and intrigue. Basically pick a bright area and plant them in well-depleting soil. Despite the fact that these plants are tolerant of numerous dirt conditions, lantana blossoms lean toward marginally acidic soil. Mulching with pine needles is a simple method to bring pH step up in regions with low corrosive. Lantanas are planted in spring once the risk of frosty climate and ice have stopped. Remember, in any case, that they lean toward warm temperatures so new development might be ease back to show up. Once the temperatures warm up however, they will develop bounteously.

Do you know the Uses of Lantana Flower?

Lantana species are widely cultivated for their flowers in tropical and subtropical environments and (as an annual plant) in temperate climates.

Most of the plants sold as lantana are either Spanish flag (species of section Lantana and their hybrids, including L. camara, L. depressa, L. hirsuta, L. horrida, L. splendens, L. strigocamara, etc.), or trailing lantana (L. montevidensis).Numerous cultivars of the Spanish flag exist, including 'Irene', 'Christine' and 'Dallas Red' (all tall-growing cultivars) and several recently introduced shorter ones. The shorter cultivars may flower more prolifically than the taller ones. Lantana montevidensis gives blue (or white) flowers all year round. Its foliage is dark green and has a distinct odor.
Although lantanas are generally hardy and, being somewhat toxic, usually rejected by herbivores, they may still become infested with pests.

The edibility of Lantana berries is contested. Some experts claim Lantana berries are edible when ripe though like many fruit are mildly poisonous if eaten while still green. Other experts claim that experimental research indicates that both unripe and ripe Lantana berries are potentially lethal, despite claims by others that ripe berries are not poisonous.

Extracts of Lantana camara may be used for protection of cabbage against the aphid Lipaphis erysimi.

The Soliga, Korava and Palliyar tribal people of the MM Hills in southern Karnataka, India use lantana to produce roughly 50 different products. It is considered a "near match" to highly priced alternatives, cane and bamboo. Furniture made from lantana is resistant to sun, rain, and termite damage.

Origin:

Well the meaning of the Lantana Camara name can easily be understood by this description Lantana - after an Italian name for the similar Viburnum while Camara - vaulted chamber, possibly referring to fruit. To 1 feet by 23 feet Golden yellow is the color of the shrub.

Source

Occurrence:

The native range of L. Camara is Central and South America, however it has become naturalized in around 60 tropical and sub-tropical countries worldwide. It is found frequently in East and South Africa where it occurs at altitudes below 2000 m and often invades previously disturbed areas such as logged forests and areas cleared for agriculture.

Source
Lantana camara is considered to be a weed in large areas of the Paleotropics where it has established itself. In agricultural areas or secondary forests it can become the dominant under storey shrub, crowding out other native species and reducing biodiversity.

Source
The formation of dense thickets of L. Camara can significantly slow down the regeneration of forests by preventing the growth of new trees.

Source

Mechanical Control:

Mechanical control of L. Camara involves physically removing the plants. Physical removal can be effective but is labor-intensive and expensive, therefore removal is usually only appropriate in small areas. Another method of mechanical control is to use fire treatment followed by re vegetation with native species.

How to Grow Lantana Flowers ;

Growing lantana in the garden is a great way to add color and interest. Simply choose a sunny location and plant them in well-draining soil. Although these plants are tolerant of many soil conditions, lantana flowers prefer slightly acidic soil. Mulching with pine needles is an easy way to raise pH levels in areas with low acid. 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. 1.jpgLantana-Dallas-Red-Plant.jpg

Lantana nursery species are derived primarily from Lantana camara and Lantana montevidensis, a trailing form. Common lantana (L. camara) is the most cultivated form of the group. Wild lantana (Lantana horrida), found in Texas and other warm, arid regions, has pungently scented leaves. Lantana plants for the garden can flower all year in warmer climates. There are now dwarf forms of the plant as well as the trailing and bushy varieties of lantana.

Trailing Lantana Plant Varieties


images (22).jpeg
Lantana plants that are hybridized from L. montevidensis produce long branches. These are useful in containers as trailing accents and most get less than 12 inches tall. ‘Clear White,’ ‘Trailing Yellow’ and ‘Weeping Lavender’ have names indicative of their spreading habit. There is also ‘New Gold’ and ‘Alba’ as well as ‘White Lightning’ and ‘Lavender Swirl.’ The dwarf or petite lantana varieties also tend to have a spreading habit. The smallest lantana available are in the Patriot series. ‘Patriot Popcorn’ and ‘Patriot Honeyglove’ are white and yellow with Honeyglove adding blush pink to the flower display.

Bushy Types of Lantana


images (23).jpeg
One of the most commonly grown species is “Miss Huff.” It is a reliable bushy form which can get 5 to 6 feet tall in one season. The flowers are a gorgeous mixture of coral, orange, pink, and yellow. For elegant red, orange and yellow blooms, try ‘New Red.’ ‘Samantha’ is bright yellow and has variegated foliage. Many of the bushy forms are also sterile, meaning they won’t produce the toxic fruits. ‘Pinkie’ is bicolor and a compact sterile plant, while ‘Patriot Dean Day Smith’ is a pastel plant that produces a 5-foot tall mound. One of the most astounding lantana plant varieties is ‘Silver Mound

PLANT GENUS

Lantana, genus of more than 150 shrubs native to tropical America and Africa and belonging to the verbena family (Verbenaceae), order Lamiales. Common lantana (L. camara), growing to 3 metres (10 feet) tall, is a weed in tropical America, but elsewhere it is much used as a garden plant. It blooms almost continuously with yellow, orange, pink, and white flower heads in various colour combinations. The aromatic leaves are rough and oval. Clusters of poisonous black berries follow the flowers.

The growing and care of lantanas (Lantana camara) is easy. These verbena-like flowers have long since been admired for their extended bloom time. There are several varieties available that offer a multitude of colors. Depending on the region and type grown, lantana plants can be treated as annuals or perennials. Grow lantana flowers in the garden or in containers. Trailing varieties can even be grown in hanging baskets. Lantanas also make a great choice for those wishing to attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden.

How to Grow Lantana Flowers:
images (12).jpeg

Growing lantana in the garden is a great way to add color and interest. Simply choose a sunny location and plant them in well-draining soil. Although these plants are tolerant of many soil conditions, lantana flowers prefer slightly acidic soil. Mulching with pine needles is an easy way to raise pH levels in areas with low acid. 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.

Lantana Plants Verbena Relatives

Lantanas belong to the verbena family. They grow much taller than the well-known annual verbena, but the small clusters of tubular blooms on this flowering plant look similar, and they bloom as freely. Lantana flowers come in red, orange, yellow, white, pink or lavender. image

One variety with yellow flowers turns orange as they age and creates striking bicolor effect.

Size and Growth Rate
The woody, deciduous, perennial Lantana produces rather bushy growth which feels rough to the touch. As a whole the ornamental plant Lantana will produce a bank of pleasing deep green.

Garden centers begin stocking plants around May, planting outdoors depends on weather, since plants cannot handle frost.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture the common Lantana plant variety grown well in USDA hardiness zones 10 and 11. Most Lantana dies back when temperatures fall below 28 degrees (Fahrenheit). Most grow back from their root system when warm weather returns. image

Lantana is a beautiful wild plant that forgets the wild tropical fields, it grows in almost all tropical and subtropical parts of South America, Africa, Australia, North America and Southeast Asia. In most tropical countries it is considered as an attacking plant and weed. Still, it is released for its intricate release in the evening, releasing that ardent Aroma, its colorful flowers. Lentar fragrance depends on the cultivation of different species, hybrid varieties are more fruitful and light aromatic. Lantern attracts flowers, peas, butterflies and nectar feeding birds.

Warning: Some of the Lantana species, like "lantana kamera", are gently toxic, especially for cattle. Lantana is both dark and greener in the soil, although it does not cause acute toxicity. Signs such as constipation, diarrhea, palpitations, and abdominal pain appear.

beautiful flowers, Lantanas like bright and full sun, and thrive in almost any kind of soil which is a real plus for poor gardening sites. You can skip waterings, but when you do water, you will want to do so thoroughly. They have been known to become invasive in some climates, but I honestly cannot picture it myself. If they grew more fully in my garden, then I would love that. They give off such beautiful little flowers that I just love them, as do the butterflies. Lantanas attract a wide range of butterflies.

Invasive weeds remind me of when I was a kid and I planted this weed (I don't know the name of it but it it has a purple flower and it is like a ground cover) in pots and my Grandma rocked up at our house and told my Dad I had planted an invasive weed in the yard. Sure enough some of the seeds got into the lawn and started to grow and choke out some of the grass.

Lantana is nice though. I love the contrasting colours of the yellow and green.

Lantana camara, often planted to embellish gardens, has spread from its native Central and South America to around 50 different countries, where it has become an invasive species.It spread from the Americas into the rest of the world when it was brought back to Europe by Dutch explorers and cultivated widely, soon spreading into Asia and Oceania, where it established itself as a notorious weed.

Lantana camara will often outcompete other more desirable species, leading to a reduction in biodiversity. It can also cause problems if it invades agricultural areas as a result of its toxicity to livestock as well as its ability to form dense thickets which if left unchecked can greatly reduce the productivity of farm land.

Lantana camara is a small perennial shrub which can grow to around 2 m tall and form dense thickets in a variety of environments.Due to extensive selective breeding throughout the 17th and 18th Centuries for use as an ornamental plant there are now many different L. camara cultivars.

Lantana camara has small tubular shaped flowers which each have four petals and are arranged in clusters in terminal areas stems. Flowers come in many different colours including red, yellow, white, pink and orange which differ depending on location in inflorescences, age, and maturity.After pollination occurs the colour of the flowers change (typically from yellow to orangish, pinkish, or reddish), this is believed to be a signal to pollinators that the pre-change colour contains a reward as well as being sexually viable, thus increasing pollination efficiency.

The leaves are broadly ovate, opposite, and simple and have a strong odour when crushed.

The fruit of L. camara is a berry-like drupe which turns from green to dark purple when mature. Both vegetative (asexual) and seed reproduction occur. Up to 12,000 fruits can be produced by each plant[16] which are then eaten by birds and other animals which can spread the seeds over large distances, facilitating the spread of L. camara

Nonstop Blooms with Lantana

Want blooms all summer for next to no work? Try lantana.

STEVE BENDER
I know what you want. Flowers all week. Flowers all month. Flowers from spring until fall. Flowers that you never have to water, spray, or fertilize. Flowers that laugh at heat and snicker at drought. Such flowers have a name--lantana. Best of all, you can plant them now.

Native to tropical America, lantanas may be annuals or perennials, depending on where you live. Tiny flowers in tight clusters that resemble miniature nosegays appear nearly continuously in warm weather. Although some selections boast flowers in solid colors, many have bicolored clusters. A lantana garden is butterfly heaven; no flowers do a better job of attracting them.

Common lantana (Lantana camara) is a rounded, shrubby plant that you sometimes see in older gardens in the Deep South. It grows 4 to 5 feet high and wide and sports orange, red, or yellow flowers. Trailing lantana (L. montevidensis) has thinner, more pliable stems and spreads, rather than mounding. It grows about 1 foot tall and up to 6 feet wide with lavender or white flowers. Most lantanas sold today are hybrids or selections of these two species.

These beautiful flowers called Lantana (Lantana camara) grows wild in Jamaica you can find these shrubs around the island.

You can find them in an array of beautiful bright colors that is attractive to bees, butterflies and humming birds

Creeping Lantana ( Lantana montevidensis ) is a low growing , tough and hardy groundcover plant. it has masses of Purple to Lavender flower heads. It flowers for most of the year in temperate climates, and is tolerant of poor soils and requires little care other than an occasional hard pruning. It grows happily by the seaside, or in any position with full sun and has few pests and diseases to bother it. Creeping Lantana is native to South America. it's larger growing cousins , Lantana camara , have flowers that are either red, orange, or yellow and sometimes multi-colored , but are considered to be noxious weeds in many countries.

They actually bloom in two tone colors.When the flowers falls off it reveals small berries (not edible)

How To Grow Lantana – Information On Growing Lantana

The growing and care of lantanas (Lantana camara) is easy. These verbena-like flowers have long since been admired for their extended bloom time. There are several varieties available that offer a multitude of colors. Depending on the region and type grown, lantana plants can be treated as annuals or perennials. Grow lantana flowers in the garden or in containers. Trailing varieties can even be grown in hanging baskets. Lantanas also make a great choice for those wishing to attract butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden.

How to Grow Lantana Flowers

Growing lantana in the garden is a great way to add color and interest. Simply choose a sunny location and plant them in well-draining soil. Although these plants are tolerant of many soil conditions, lantana flowers prefer slightly acidic soil. Mulching with pine needles is an easy way to raise pH levels in areas with low acid. 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.

Caring for Lantana Plants While 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. Although it isn’t required, lantana plants can be given a light dose of fertilizer each spring, but too much may inhibit their overall flowering. To encourage reblooming, cut the tips (deadhead) periodically. Overgrown plants can be given new life by cutting back a third of their growth. They will bounce back quickly. Regular pruning of the plant usually takes place in spring.

Common Problems with Growing Lantanas While lantanas are not affected by too many problems, you may encounter them on occasion. Powdery mildew can become a problem if the plant is not given enough light. In addition, the plant may develop root rot if it is kept too wet. Sooty mold is a condition that causes black discoloration on the leaves and is most often attributed to insect pests, such as whiteflies. Other common pests that affect lantana plants include lace bugs, which cause the foliage to turn gray or brown and then drop off.

Lantanas are amazingly reliable and beautiful members of the landscape, but sometimes they just won’t bloom. The delicate, clustered flowers of lantana attract butterflies and passersby alike, but when these sturdy, dependable bushes are more fizzle than sizzle, you may start searching for ways of making lantana bloom. No flowers on lantana have a number of causes, but by far the most common cause is planting them in the wrong spot. If your lantana won’t bloom, take a look at these reasons why a lantana does not flower.

Reasons for Lantana Not Blooming Even though lantana is usually blooming when you buy it at the nursery, it may not continue to bloom once you plant it. This is a common problem of all shrubs after transplantation – all the manipulation of roots and change of scenery can cause a significant amount of shock that causes flowers and buds to drop shortly after planting. It’s a normal reaction that will clear up over time, but if an established lantana does not flower, you’ve probably got one of these problems on your hands:

Too Much Shade – Lantana needs full sun in order to bloom properly and that means at least six hours of full sun, eight or more is even better. When flowering plants like lantana are deprived of sunlight, they lack the energy to bloom. Excess TLC – When plants have evolved in tough conditions like lantana has, too much care can give them the impression that they’re living the easy life and don’t need to worry about reproducing. Without a need to reproduce, lantana has no motivation to bloom, so lay off the deep waterings and heavy fertilizer. Lacewing Insects – Lantana are generally pretty pest resistant, but they can be bothered by lacewing insects. These tiny, leaf sucking pests can stress the plants so much that they refuse to bloom. If everything else seems right, but your lantana still won’t bloom, look for tiny insects on the undersides of the leaves. You can kill them with insecticidal soap. Once your plants recover, they should bloom happily again. Mysterious Green Pods – Check your plant carefully for small green pods. These are the young seeds of the lantana plant. Once the plant has begun forming seeds, it has no reason to continue blooming since it accomplished its sole mission in life. Cut off the pods to stimulate new flowering.

How To Propagate Lantana: Learn How To Grow Lantana From Cuttings And Seed


Lantanas come into bloom in summer with large, neatly-shaped clusters of flowers in a wide range of colors. A cluster of lantana flowers start out all one color, but as the blossoms age they change to different colors, giving the cluster an interesting, multicolor appearance. This tender perennial is grown as an annual in USDA plant hardiness zones cooler than 9. Propagating these plants is easy, and the following information will help with that.

How to Propagate Lantana


Lantanas grown in the garden are often hybrids, so propagating lantana plants from seeds may not result in offspring that are similar to the parent plant. To collect the seeds, harvest the small black berries when they are fully ripe and remove the seeds from the berries. Clean the seeds and allow them to dry for a couple of days before storing them in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Cuttings always produce a plant exactly like the parent plant. If you are partial to the color or other characteristics of a particular plant, take cuttings in the spring rather than growing lantana from seed. To preserve plants until spring in cool climates, cut them back and then pot them up so that you can care for them indoors over winter.

Growing Lantana from Seeds


Start lantana seeds indoors six to eight weeks before you plan to transplant them outdoors. Soak the seeds for 24 hours in warm water to soften the seed coat. Fill small, individual pots to within ½ inch of the top with soilless seed starting medium and moisten the medium with water. Lay one or two seeds in the center of each pot and cover the seeds with 1/8 inch of soil. If more than one seedling emerges, clip out the weakest plant with a pair of scissors. Growing lantana from seed is easiest when you keep the soil consistently moist and at a steady temperature between 70 and 75 F. (21-24 C.) day and night. A good way to maintain the moisture is to place the pots in a plastic bag and seal the bag. While the pots are in the bag, keep them away from direct sunlight. Check the pots often and remove the bag as soon as the seedlings emerge. Don’t give up too soon—the seeds may take a month or more to germinate

See also Lantana camara for more information.

I find no official source of evidence that Swamp Wallabies can eat Lantana safely. A few web sites say the Swamp Wallabies live in the shelter provided by the Lantana, but their leaves are toxic, and "The Complete Guide to the Care of Macropods" By Lynda Staker says Lantana is "toxic to all animals" and that red kangaroos who ate lantana died of photosensitivity and liver damage. Staker references an article that appeared in the Journal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine "Hepatotoxicity and Secondary Photosensitization in a Red Kangaroo (Megaleia rufus) Due to Ingestion of Lantana camara" by Johnson & Jensen. :Please cite reputable source. :Thanks. 18 Feb 2015 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.2.21.18 (talk) 03:27, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
How do I get rid of this horrible plant?

Grub it out if you don't have too much. Dig out all the surface roots and burn them. If you have acres of it, push it over with a tractor and poison the new growth. Your local council can tell you the best poison for your area, but you need to spray when it is growing strongly.

Alleopathy
Is Lantana allelopathic? I recall that when we had a few bushes of it in our yard in San Diego, California that no grass grew underneath it; the dirt was quite clean and bare. If so, a link to the allelopathy article would be in order.

That is a amazing trees and really beautiful flowers. the beat garden.
