How to grow trailing Lantana montevidensis
Lantana montevidensis is a flower that anyone can easily grow.
Moisture, nurturing, nothing hard.
If you want to grow big, please grow it in the ground.
It will grow significantly in a few years.
↓If you want to grow the flowers well like this, it is recommended to cut the floral pattern a little or prun it a little after flowering.
By doing so,It will be better with flowers at the next flowering.
The perennial trailing lantana blooms all year round.
But it is better not to give too much fertilizer.
If it becomes overnourished, it will only grow and the flowers will not bloom, resulting in a small number.
In my case, I give fertilizer only once a year in winter or spring.
- Don’t give too much fertilizer.
(I am fertilizer once or twice a year)
- Don’t give too much water.
- It depends on the size of the flower plant, but it is best to keep it a little dry.
- Be careful only in the summer.
- It is the worst to be sticky.
Winter care for trailing Lantana montevidensis
My house is in central Japan so it’s relatively warm.
It snows once a year for only one day.
So I don't do anything.
If it grows after the third year, it’s a good idea to cut it in half before winter.
Since my house will be over 3m long, I will prun it to half the length before winter.
