Here is the way to bring the party to your container or landscape gardens. Luscious Royale Cosmo Lantana is a bright fuchsia-pink cluster with yellow-orange highlights suspended over dark-green foliage and brings that pop of color to your summer and fall gardens in most climates. It is perennial in hot summer climates where it becomes a woody shrub, but is primarily grown as a vigorous annual in warm climates with cold winters.
Native to Central and South American tropical regions, Zones 9a through 11b, it is put out after the danger of the last frost is passed in Zones 3-8. It requires warmth to reach its full flowering potential, so cool spring weather will slow its display. Luscious Royale Cosmo lantana requires little intervention from you to provide a full season of color, but with a little care, you can create a prolific display all season long.
Luscious® Royale Cosmo Lantana Care
Requiring full sun and warm temperatures to reach optimal bloom, lantana will require nothing but the occasional intervention from you. Water regularly when first establishing the plant, and when extremely dry, feed with a slow release fertilizer especially if it is grown in long season hot climates...it thrives on virtual neglect from there onward. Regular deep watering, moderate to moist loose soil with a pH of 5.8 to 6.2, and light maintenance will reward you with lush growth and profuse flowering.
Deadheading is not required to maintain flowering, but if the plant goes to seed and produces berries, it will slow the blooming. Trim off the berries to keep a full season of blossoms. Pruning back to ⅓ of the plant when grown as a perennial in warmer regions will refresh the plant and provide renewed flowering and reduce woody growth. Annual plants shouldn’t need pruning but shear lightly to keep it in shape or within the bounds of the container you have it planted in.
Luscious® Royale Cosmo Lantana Spacing
Spacing is crucial to reduce plant disease like downy mildew and sooty mold. Give plants 12 to 24 inches of space to increase air circulation. If sooty mold occurs, slow your watering regimen, remove affected leaves and prune plants to give space. Growing 26 inches tall and up to 24 inches wide, this upright slightly mounded plant can be paired with low growing ground cover and taller full sun annuals and perennials for an outstanding summer long color fest.
