Description

New Gold Lantana, scientifically known as Lantana x hybrida 'New Gold,' is a widely grown perennial plant from the Verbenaceae family. It originates from tropical regions and has vibrant golden-yellow flowers and lush green foliage.

This lantana variety has a compact and mounding growth habit, making it a fantastic choice for borders, containers, or as a groundcover. It reaches a height of 1 to 2 feet and can spread up to 3 to 4 feet wide, creating a dense carpet of foliage and summer blooms.

A significant advantage of growing New Gold Lantana is its ability to attract pollinators like butterflies and bees to your garden. These beautiful creatures add to the beauty of your garden and play a vital role in pollination, enhancing the biodiversity of your outdoor space.

Another plus of New Gold Lantana is its low maintenance requirements. Once established, this plant is quite drought-resistant and can thrive in various soil types, including sandy or rocky soils. Its heat tolerance makes it perfect for gardens in hot and sunny climates.

Besides its stunning flowers and easy care, New Gold Lantana is known for its long blooming period. From late spring to fall, you can enjoy a profusion of golden blooms illuminating your garden and attracting attention from neighbors and pollinators!

Care tip for New Gold Lantana

Watering Needs:

New Gold Lantana plants require regular watering, especially during the hot summer. It's crucial to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Check the moisture level by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, it's time to water. Deep watering once or twice a week is generally sufficient, allowing the water to penetrate the root zone.

Feeding and Fertilizing Schedule:

We recommend fertilizing New Gold Lantana plants every four to six weeks during the growing season to encourage healthy growth and vibrant blooms. Use a balanced slow-release fertilizer, following the instructions on the packaging. Avoid over-fertilizing, which can lead to excessive foliage growth with fewer flowers.

Tips for Proper Nutrient Balance:

Ensure a proper nutrient balance by choosing a fertilizer with a ratio of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) suitable for flowering plants. Look for a fertilizer with a higher middle number (P) to encourage abundant blooms. Additionally, consider adding organic matter, such as compost, to improve soil fertility and retain moisture.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Spacing Recommendations

Space your New Gold Lantana plants about 8" apart for seamless foliage. Space them over a foot apart to leave space between each plant.
