Lantana Std, also known as Lantana camara, is a popular flowering shrub that is native to tropical regions of the Americas, Africa, and the Caribbean. It is prized for its colorful flowers and its ability to attract pollinators like bees and butterflies. Here is a description of Lantana Std that is suitable for a UK website:
Best position: Lantana Std is a sun-loving shrub that prefers a warm and sheltered spot in the garden. It can tolerate some shade but will produce fewer flowers in these conditions. Lantana Std is also a good choice for coastal gardens as it is tolerant of salt spray.
Flowering time: Lantana Std flowers from early summer until the first frosts of autumn. It produces clusters of small, tubular flowers in shades of red, orange, yellow, and pink. These flowers are highly attractive to pollinators and will help to support the biodiversity of your garden.
When to feed: Lantana Std is a low-maintenance shrub that does not require much feeding. However, it will benefit from a light application of general-purpose fertiliser in early spring to encourage healthy growth and flowering.
When to prune: Lantana Std is best pruned in early spring, just before the new growth starts to appear. Cut back any dead or damaged branches to encourage new growth and remove any crossing branches that may be rubbing against each other. You can also shape the plant at this time if desired, but be careful not to remove too much of the plant as this can reduce the flowering potential.
