Lantana montevidensis

Purple Trailing Lantana

This tough native of South America quickly forms a low mounding groundcover with dark green, aromatic, rough-textured foliage. Clusters of lavender flowers cover the plant in the warm months, followed by toxic blue berries. This plant tolerates full sun, reflected heat, smog, poor soil and drought. Cut back frost-damaged foliage in the spring. Control whiteflies as needed.
