Lantana camara 'Confetti' (Non-native)
Lantana Camara, commonly called lantana or shrub verbena, is native to Central and South America. It is an upright frost-tender shrub that grows 3-6’ tall. It has escaped gardens worldwide and is considered a noxious weed in many frost-free/tropical areas, where it can rapidly spread to form dense thickets. It has naturalized in parts of the southern United States, including South Florida, the Gulf Coast, and southern California. Tiny 5-lobed flowers bloom in dense hemispherical clusters (to 2” diameter) from summer to fall. Flower colors include white, yellow, orange, red, and purple, often mixed in the same group. Flowers are attractive to butterflies and hummingbird moths.
Top growth winter hardy to USDA Zones 10-11 (roots hardy to Zone 9). Container plants can be trained as standards and quickly grown as bedding plants in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun, and tolerate poor soils.
We recommend using only in planters, as it is listed as an invasive species.
