Growing Lantana in my Garden for Summer Project

Fig 01- Bright color of Lantana

I just visited one of nurseries in my city, Baton Rouge. One flower called Lantana has been attracted me.

Lantana is a scientific genus with 150 species spread to many part in the world include here in the USA.

This flowers grow well in the southern states of USA, because warmer temperature, and Lantana produce flowers during hot summers.

The states may include:

- Texas
- Louisiana
- Mississippi
- Alabama
- Florida
- Georgia

Sure, the types or species may different on each states.

In Louisiana, we have several types of Lantana, some of them are:

- Lantana camara
- Lantana montevidensis,
- Lantana urticoides
- Lantana Involucrata
- Lantana horrida


Fig 03- Pink color of Lantana

It is said that Lantana may reach to 6 feet (2 meter) tall. Interestingly, the flowers are diseases and insect free.

Butterflies and hummingbirds love to visit Lantana, because flowers have attractive colors and sources of foods.

Many pollinators found nectar and pollen in the Lantana flowers, hence our backyard to be friendly garden for pollinators.

I am planning to grow Lantana in my backyard as my summer project.

Do you have specific project in this summer season?

  9. The lantana, in addition to having lovely flowers, I like by its leaves and the leafy of the plant. Here in Spain there are also some varieties of it. The one with the yellow and red flowers we call him colloquially "banderita"
    Best regards.
