More Details

The Texas Lantana, scientifically recognized as Lantana urticoides, is a vibrant perennial that adds a delightful burst of color to gardens and outdoor spaces. Celebrated for its dazzling clusters of red, orange, and yellow flowers, this plant is a magnet for pollinators like butterflies and hummingbirds. Perfectly suited for warmer climates, Texas Lantana is a robust grower that, with proper care, rewards gardeners with a continuous bloom that amplifies the natural charm of outdoor environments.

Growth rate: Moderate growth rate; Mature height: 2-4 feet; Mature width: 3-6 feet.

Please note: Images on our website depict plants and trees at full maturity to showcase their expected grown characteristics. These images are illustrative examples only and do not represent the size of plants or trees upon delivery.

Pruning: Regularly deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming. In late winter or early spring, prune back hard (about six inches above the ground) to encourage new growth and a more compact form.

Fertilization: Feed with a general-purpose fertilizer in the spring before the new growth begins. Over-fertilizing can lead to more foliage and fewer blooms.

Winter Protection: In cooler parts of its range (zones 7-8), it may die back in winter but will return in spring. Consider applying a light layer of mulch around the base to protect the roots in the colder months.


Select a site with well-draining soil and full sun exposure. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball, ensuring it's the same depth as the pot it came in. Remove the plant from its pot, gently tease the roots, and place it in the hole. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water thoroughly after planting. Mulching around the base will help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Remember to keep mulch away from direct contact with the plant's stems.

Texas Lantana loves the sun and can handle drought conditions once established. Water thoroughly during the initial planting phase and then reduce watering, ensuring the soil is allowed to dry out between sessions.
