Talk about the perfect plant, Lantana Bandana Cherry Sunrise is at the top of the list. A steady, summer-long bloomer, this plant is heat and drought tolerant and it thrives in pots or in the ground. Many lantana flowers have variable colors, which just adds to their beauty. With a mounded habit, this lantana (L. camara) gets about 24 inches tall and wide, forming many branches with lots of flowers.
Lantana takes about as much heat and sun as you want to give it. Butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators visit all summer long. Most of the country grows lantana as an annual, but technically it’s a tender perennial. In warmer climates, it may grow shrub size. This is a reliable, colorful thriller for containers. In the landscape, use as an accent plant, as a summer border, or mix with perennials to extend flower power.
Bandana Cherry Sunrise Lantana Care
Grow Lantana Bandana Cherry Sunrise in full sun. In a container, use a high quality potting mix, which is formulated to improve drainage. Water as needed and fertilize containers, according to label directions. If grown as a perennial, apply compost around the base of the plant once or twice a year. Deadheading (removing spent flowers) is not necessary. Lantana foliage is fragrant and is toxic to pets. Lantana can be trimmed for shaping, if needed.
Lantana is not recommended as a houseplant. Usually the plants are pulled at the end of the season. If in a more moderate zone, such as USDA 6, consider mulching the plant in the ground with chopped leaves to see if it survives winter. Some Midwest gardeners have been successful doing this.
Bandana Cherry Sunrise Lantana Spacing
Although in the 24-inch tall and wide range, lantana shines when mixed with other summer annuals, rather than grown singly in a 12- or 14-inch pot. In the ground, space about 15 inches apart, or use three to five in a cluster.
