Lantana montevidensis (Non-native)

Lantana montevidensis, commonly called trailing lantana or weeping lantana, is native to tropical areas of South America. In frost-free areas, it grows as a low, trailing, woody shrub to only 12-20" tall but spreads by vine-like stems to 5' wide or more. It is typically grown as a dense ground cover, and flowers attract bees and butterflies. Trailing lantana has escaped gardens and naturalized in parts of the southern U.S., including Florida, the Gulf Coast, and southern California. It can spread in frost-free areas but is less invasive than its close relative, Lantana Camara. Genus name comes from the Latin name for viburnum. This species was reportedly discovered in Montevideo, Uruguay, hence the specific epithet.

Winter hardy to USDA Zones 8-10, where plants will thrive outdoors as sprawling, low-growing shrubs featuring continuous bloom throughout the year. Plants are quickly grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Plants tolerate part of the shade, but the best flowering is in full sun. Plants thrive in lean, sandy, slightly-dry soils.

We recommend using only in planters, as it is listed as an invasive species.
