Product Details

Lantana montevidensis Lavender Swirl® has the agreeable habit of blooming abundantly day in, day out all summer long, provided it gets full sun. With hundreds of white and lavender flowers, it is ideal for pots, planters, and hanging baskets, and makes an exceptionally rewarding bedding plant. The blooms are larger than those of the species and are therefore especially showy. It is also loved by butterflies. 'Monswee' PP 7,626

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.

WHEN WE SHIP

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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

Disappointing performance

We have grown lantanas in pots for years, always purchased locally. The hummingbirds and butterflies love them. They are seemingly bulletproof and very robust. I put these 3 plants in the same large pot, using the same soil, and in the same (very sunny) place, but their performance has been disappointing. The plants are leggy, with few and rather small flower clusters. I have tried pinching them back to make them bushier, and have kept up with the weekly fish emulsion fertilizer, but with meager results. Perhaps others have had better luck with this cultivar but despite the unusual and pleasing colors I do not think I would purchase it again.

Great grower!

This plant is just gorgeous. Filled the container and lasted all summer. I bought another one for 2022.

Poor performer

This lantana's leaves have yellowed and partially fallen in autumn before any appreciable cold weather . The plants look sparse and spindly while the standard white and purple/ lavender trailing lantana remain green and lush. The plant bloomed adequately during the summer but in no aspect did it prove superior to its montevidensis counterparts. I would not purchase this plant again.

INCREDIBLE!!!

Absolutely, hands-down, one of the most-beautiful plants we have in our garden! Stays in bloom for so long - perfect for full sun - everything they say it is... and then some. Just came back to purchase more and, as we figured, it's SOLD OUT. :( :(. Will keep our eyes open so we can purchase lots more! This one is a fabulous one!

Latin Name Pronunciation: lan-tay'nuh  

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.

Growing Standards:

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.
