The Lantana is part of the Verbenaceae family, commonly known as the verbena or vervain family. The Lantana is originally from South-America. It is one of the easiest patio plants and comes in different colours such as orange, pink, white and yellow. It generally blooms all summer long.
The Lantana can be placed in a sunny spot on a terrace, balcony or in the garden. Water moderately, avoiding drying out the roots completely and fertilize every two weeks. It is best to regularly remove any dead flowers or berries and cut back longer branches. The plant will form new growth and flower all summer long. The Lantana is not winter hardy.
