It is easy to see how Lantana Radiation gets its common name. This hybrid from South America offers rich, orange red flowers appearing from spring through fall, radiating with the brilliant seasonal color that attracts hummingbird and butterflies! We love this Lantana variety because it thrives in the summer and keeps on blooming when many other flowers cease. We like to plant these bushy tropical evergreen shrubs as a low hedge or accent, and they are ideal for a border. They also look beautiful planted in rock gardens and create a stunning landscape scene when planted in mass!
Lantana Radiation grows at a fast pace so that they can fill in any young landscape with the right amount of color. They love to grow in a spot with plenty of full sun exposure, and they are very resilient in reflected heat, so they are a good choice for planting near driveways or for being a natural filler to sunny slopes. Since they tolerate pollution, these are an excellent choice to bring some bright colors to any urban landscape! Once established, these easy care plants have little to moderate water requirements.
We like to plant Lantana Radiation with other bright blooming flowers as Red Yucca, Hibiscus, and Cordyline, all of which are available at Big Tex! Apply fertilizer in the spring for the best development. We have the fertilizer you need right for treating Houston’s dense soil, so be sure to pick some up while you are here!
Lantana camara ‘Radiation’ is an excellent plant for adding a burst of seasonal color and year round interest to any landscape, whether it is a blank-slate or a backyard makeover. Ask us how the right plants planted in the right spot can increase property value!
