The other lantanas are starving native butterflies and birds and destroying the ntive habitats in Florida.Home depot and Lowes and other gardens center sell the the invasive lantans because eveyone is buying the pretty non-natives. depressa ) are just as beautiful and do more good than harm.I now water every 3 days and the Lantana is growing like a weed, which is great ,since I planted it as a ground cover to fill in large planters.10x10 and 8x8.Apparently , Huntington Beach, Calif., is ideal for this plant and I would advise anyone in need of great color and ground cover needs to go with this one. read more On May 23, 2016, Mary Arneson from Minneapolis, MN (Zone 4b) wrote: This lantana has been better for attracting hummingbirds and butterflies than some others I have grown. It overwintered indoors by an east window and even bloomed there (in Minnesota). The plant does require deadheading, both to keep it blooming and to prevent formation of toxic berries.I live in northern florida and kept one plant inside and it did well; however, I found that it now has these white bugs that is eating the leaves and that makes me upset!!!!!!!!The plant is about to bloom (flower) and we are in the first week of March!!If you are in a tropical or subtropical climate, cut the blooms before they fruit or you will have prodigious results.Palm Beach County provides web cameras at 3 inlets as a public service.

I don't like to use a lot of pesticide nand have just bought some more.
What could be doing this and would a homemade soap based pesticied work? It adds a great splash of color and spills over the edges of the beds.

I have found that, in addition to orange and yellow, I also get purple, blue and white speckeles in my blooms (this might be due to the more acidic soil). Like many old world varieties, it needs to be trained and trimmed in order to keep it from taking over but it can be trained into shrubs or trees in warmer zones.
