A mounding annual that is deer resistant and heat tolerant, has scented foliage, and attracts butterflies and hummingbirds sounds like a plant you could use about anywhere. The vigorous Lantana Landmark™ series is ideal for large group plantings, but Rose Sunrise also looks lovely in a hanging basket, where its brightly colored dark rose-pink and yellow blossoms over deep green foliage can be appreciated up close. Prune back Lantanas after the first flush of flowers to shape them and prompt the formation of more buds. 'Balandrise' PP 19,151
HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Coopers mom from Pocono Lake, Pa
I continue to buy these every year because the colors are outstanding, they continue to bloom into the fall and the hummingbirds love them. I put actual hummingbird feeders on stakes into their pots and it was quite a show!
Lothlorien from East Longmeadow, Massachusetts
I've had one now for 5 years or so...bought it to hang on the South side of the house next to the front door..WOW, takes the full day sun beautifully! I've tried many sun loving annuals in the same spot, but they couldn't take the exposure..Love my Lantana..I bring it in every fall & put it in my south window after cutting it back & then bring it back out in the spring...sometimes I might hang it from a lower tree branch in late August if it's been a brutal summer & it looks beautiful there too...Love, Love, Love Lantana
Daisy Hill Garden from Dadeville, AL
I plant these in a long border where they mound into perfect shape and perform beautiful throughout the hot Alabama summer and until frost. They survive outside in mild winters (zone 7). If a hard winter kills them, I buy again because there are the most spectacular border imaginable: deer don't bother them and butterflies and hummingbirds love them. Generally free of pests and disease.
BlueSky from East Haven, Connecticut
Bought an 8" potted plant version at the beginning of the summer and it held up great on a very sunny deck, potted. I brought it indoors in October near a window, and it still maintains some blooms even through November. Wondering how long it is going to last indoors this Winter....
Full sun (or partial shade in the South) and well-drained soil. Tolerates drought. Excellent in containers and hanging baskets. Put one plant in a 6–8″ pot, 3 plants in a 12–14″ pot or hanging basket. In all but mild-winter climates (plants are hardy to Zone 8 [10°F]), lift plants before frost and overwinter in pots on a sunny windowsill. Prune hard in spring. Set back outdoors when nighttime temperatures remain consistently above 55°F.
A standard is a woody plant trained to a long, single stem. The stem is crowned with a round head of foliage and flowers. This arrangement is beautiful but also unnatural, requiring a bit of effort on the part of the gardener to prevent gravity and the unrepressed inclinations of the plant from undoing the horticulturist's handiwork.
Staking a Standard: To keep your standard standing, put it out of reach of strong winds and support it with a stake that has a diameter at least as large as the stem's and long enough that when plunged into the pot or the ground it just reaches inside the head. Fasten the standard to the stake at several points with garden twine or green plastic tie tape looped in a figure-eight around stem and stake. Check the ties periodically during the growing season and loosen them if they constrict the outward growth of the stem.
Pruning, fertilizing, and repotting: Maintain the shape of the head with selective pinching of the new shoots (overzealous pinching will prevent the formation of flower buds). Pinch each shoot between thumb and forefinger or cut with pruning shears. Do not shear the plant as though it were a hedge. Fertilize standards grown in pots as you would other pot-grown plants. If you find that a standard in a container dries out quickly after watering, the plant probably needs a larger pot. Lift it from its current pot, make four deep vertical cuts in the root ball, and place it in a new pot that is 2in wider and taller than the old one, filling in around the root ball with fresh potting mix. Water thoroughly after repotting.
Overwintering a standard: Most standards require special care to overwinter. In cold winter climates, bring standards of Abutilon, Anisodontea, Fuchsia, Heliotrope, Lantana, and Rosemary indoors before frost and place them in an east- or west-facing window in a cool room. Water just enough to keep plants from drying out completely, and do not fertilize while plants are in this not-quite-dormant period. Set back outdoors in spring when nighttime temperatures remain consistently above 55°F.
Rosemaries will survive the winter in the ground in Zones 7 and warmer. In colder zones, bring your potted Rosemary indoors in the fall. Cut your Rosemary back by about one-third before bringing it indoors to overwinter. Do not repot it often as this causes shock. Place the plant in a spot that receives a lot of sun but that stays under 60°F. A cool, sunny enclosed porch is ideal. Keep the plant away from heat sources and on the dry side. Do not fertilize.
