Lantana is a great plant for adding a punch of color to your deck or patio during the height of summer. PassionFruit Lantana has juicy and delectable ombre flowers, consisting of magenta, orange, and yellow hues. The blooms persist into the fall until the first frost. The moderate trailing habit works as a spiller element in a hanging basket or window box. Both foliage and flowers are highly scented, making it a pleasant addition to any outdoor seating area. Lantana is also highly attractive to pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds. Unlike other Lantana varieties, PassionFruit self-seeds infrequently and produces non-stop flowers. 

Lantana does a lot of heavy lifting in hot and humid climates. The color never fades no matter how much sun the plant receives. The foliage remains clean and vibrant with moderate fertilizing and regular watering. Pair the trailing habit of PassionFruit Lantana with a thriller and a couple of filler plants to create a long-lasting color container. Lantana is hardy year-round in USDA zones 9-11 and can be planted out in the garden as a woody perennial. The ground-hugging growth habit makes an outstanding ground cover in a sunny garden border.

PassionFruit Lantana Care

Plant lantana where it will receive at least 6 hours of full sun exposure. It will tolerate some shade early in the morning or late in the day. Well-draining soil is important to prevent any root problems. Containers should be watered when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry. Feed plants every 2-3 weeks with a diluted liquid fertilizer high in phosphorus to encourage heavy blooming. Look for an NPK ratio of 1-4-3. 

Pinch back early growth to help the plant form a dense framework of stems that can support more flower buds. Deadheading is not needed for PassionFruit Lantana. The plant is self-cleaning and has a continuous bloom cycle.  

In gardening regions with winter frost, Lantana can be grown indoors over the winter as a houseplant. It will need bright direct sun and plenty of humidity to help it through the winter months. Place the pot or basket in a south-facing window or under dedicated LED plant lights. Watering can be reduced to once every 7-10 days, and fertilizing should be stopped altogether. 

PassionFruit Lantana Spacing

Lantana is quick to fill in empty spots in a container or a garden bed. The overall height and width of PassionFruit Lantana is 12-16 inches. Allow 12 inches between plants grown in the garden. Hanging baskets of at least 10 inches can accommodate one plant through an entire season.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
