Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

If you are looking for a tough plant it's hard to beat lantana.  Lantana are heat tolerant, use little to no supplemental water in the landscape, will tolerate less than ideal soils and usually don't need to be deadheaded.

If you are looking for a plant that will thrive on neglect, lantana is the champ.

An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
