‘Trailing Lantana’

FAMILY: lantana

USES: Colourful flower display for borders, low formal/informal hedge, groundcover, transitional areas, window boxes, hanging baskets and as a cascader over a retaining or terrace wall. Does well in pots, containers, green walls and other focal points.

SIZE: Grows 30 – 50cm tall with a 1 – 2m spread at a rate of 60cm p/a.

LOCATION: Full sun to partial shade. Becomes leggy if grown in too much shade.

SOIL: Best in an organically enriched free draining fertile sandy soil with a pH 5.6 – 7.8, acidic to mildly alkaline.

FERTILISER: Apply a light application of slow release 14:14:14 NPK every 3 months to encourage flowering.

WATER: Keep soil moist. Too much water will lead to leafy growth over flowers and make the plant more susceptible to diseases. Drought tolerant for short periods only for best appearance. Does not accept over irrigation or waterlogging which will lead to root rot.
