Description

The Red Little Lucky Lantana from the Southern Living Plant Collection may be exactly what your garden needs! This perennial produces gorgeous clusters of multi-colored blooms that range from red to orange to yellow. Furthermore, their bloom season begins up to three weeks before traditional Lantanas! Expect these beauties to continuously rebloom from spring to the first frost.

The leaves of the Red Little Lucky Lantana are short and pointed, with deep lobes. This bright green foliage is an ideal backdrop for the blooms and provides a phenomenal contrast. Additionally, this plant is deciduous, which means that it will lose its foliage in winter before returning in spring.

Its foliage is dense and quite compact. Therefore, it's not leggy like most Lantanas. It maxes out at only 10-12" H x 10-12" W! This opens up some fantastic opportunities in the landscape. Use it as a container plant or in the foreground of a garden bed. Alternatively, plant a huge group of them for a low-maintenance mass planting.

The Red Little Lucky Lantana takes heat and humidity in stride, so it's perfect for Southern gardens and landscapes!

This series has four Lantanas, including the Red Little Lucky Lantana, Peach Glow Little Lucky Lantana, Hot Pink Little Lucky Lantana and the Pot of Gold Little Lucky Lantana.

Red Little Lucky Lantana Care

Perennial from USDA Zones 8-10, and Annual in Zones 7 and below.

Plant in Full Sun for best results, at least 5-6 hours per day.

Water 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. Afterward, the Red Little Lucky Lantana has relatively low water requirements.

Grows best in rich garden soil with good drainage.

Lantanas need little fertilizer to grow and bloom properly provided that the soil is fertile. However, feel free to apply an organic balanced fertilizer in early spring.

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

Plant your Red Little Lucky Lantana plants 8-10" apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, plant them over 12" apart for space between plants.
