Lantana camara 'Luscious Citrus Blend', otherwise known as shrub verbena, is an annual that is well worth growing for its non-stop colour with masses of small round clusters of orange, red, pink, and yellow flowers. Plants grow 30 inches tall and wide. They are tough and drought and heat tolerant once established. Deadhead to encourage more flowers. Pollinators are attracted to its citrus-like fragrance. Excellent in borders as mass plantings, and in containers and hanging baskets. Low maintenance. Consider as an annual in colder climates though it might be possible to bring inside to a sunny window in winter.
