A Bit More

Year-round lavender blooms, drought tolerance, seaside tolerance, and deer resistance make Lantana montevidensis one of our most popular shrubs. Growing 2’ tall and spreading up to 6’ wide, Lantana has stems of dark green leaves that trail nicely. Caution should be used when handling leaves, as fine hairs on the foliage can cause skin irritation. Cold hardy to 10° F, leaves may turn dark purple in the cold. Pollinators are attracted by clusters of tiny pink-purple flowers. A fast-growing shrub, Lantana montevidensis is a good choice as erosion control, draping over wall edges, in containers, or as a quick ground cover.
