After 6 years of trialing, we are pleased to add another lantana to the list of hardy cultivars. Lantana 'Star Landing' is a deer-resistant seedling selection from Larry Force of Desoto Co., Mississippi. Lantana 'Star Landing' makes a wide spreading clump to 2' tall x 8' wide, topped all summer with bright flower heads of both yellow-orange (RHS 28A) and red-orange (RHS 42A) on the same flower...a hummingbird fiesta. It does not have the pink coloration as seen in Lantana 'Miss Huff'. It has proven to be sterile unless planted in the presence of another cultivar, when the urge to procreate just becomes too overwhelming. As with all hardy lantanas, don't cut the old stalks back until growth resumes in spring.
