This selection of lantana was introduced by Goodness Grows Nursery in Georgia, from...who else?...Miss Huff of nearby Athens. In our trials, this is the hardiest lantana, with well-established clumps surviving short durations of -3 degrees F. The deer-resistant plants emerge from the ground in early May and, within a couple of weeks, are topped with showy orange (RHS 28A), yellow (RHS 17A), and pink flower heads that are produced nonstop until frost. Virtual sterility also prevents unwanted seedlings and promotes more flowering...and more hummingbirds. Established clumps will get quite large (to 10' spread) when happy! For full hardiness, establish well prior to winter. Do not cut old stems in fall or winter when grown in marginal climates.
