Description

Tangerine Lantana features showy cymes of gold flowers with orange overtones at the ends of the branches from early summer to mid fall. Its tomentose pointy leaves remain green in color throughout the year.

Landscape Attributes

Tangerine Lantana is a multi-stemmed annual with a ground-hugging habit of growth. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Tangerine Lantana is recommended for the following landscape applications;

Mass Planting;Border Edging;General Garden Use;Container Planting;Hanging Baskets

Planting & Growing

Tangerine Lantana will grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. Although it's not a true annual, this fast-growing plant can be expected to behave as an annual in our climate if left outdoors over the winter, usually needing replacement the following year. As such, gardeners should take into consideration that it will perform differently than it would in its native habitat.
