The Pot of Gold Little Lucky Lantana is a brilliant beauty from the Southern Living Plant Collection. They have bright golden yellow flower clusters that rebloom from summer through fall. These beauties are incredibly prolific bloomers.
They’re also naturally compact. They reach only 1 ft. tall and wide at maturity. Therefore, they’re extremely low-maintenance. They’re also heat and humidity tolerant once established. Use them in containers, borders, mixed garden beds and mass plantings.
They are perennial in USDA Zones 8a to 10b and annual outside of those zones. In perennial zones, they will die back to the ground after the first freeze of the year. They’re a great addition to seasonal long-blooming annual containers.
The Little Lucky series includes four different varieties, the Red Little Lucky Lantana, Pot of Gold Little Lucky Lantana, and Hot Pink Little Lucky Lantana.
Pot of Gold Little Lucky Lantana Care
Perennial in USDA Zones 8-11 and Annual in Zones 7 and below.
Plant in Full Sun for best results. Too little sunlight exposure leads to decreased bloom and foliage potential.
Water 2-3 times per week during the first growing season to ensure that it gets well-established. Check the soil around your plant an hour after watering it. If the soil is still soggy and waterlogged, decrease the frequency with which you water it. If the soil is dry, increase the frequency that you water it.
The Pot of Gold Little Lucky Lantana grows best in rich garden soil with good drainage.
This variety requires little fertilizer, however, a light application of a balanced organic fertilizer ensures that it will stay happy and healthy.
Space your Pot of Gold Little Lucky Lantana plants about 8″ apart for seamless foliage. Space them over a foot apart to leave space between each plant.
