Little Lucky Red Lantana
Lantana camara 'Little Lucky Red'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones:  10-11  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 10, where this Lantana variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

Little Lucky Red is a member of the Little Lucky Series of Lantana. As you might have guessed by the name, these are noted for their smaller size (10-12 inches tall and wide). So, if you love Lantana, but haven't had the room to grow one, now you do! 

Little Lucky Red may be small in size, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in flower power. The compact, mounding plants are covered in flowers, and they start blooming 3 weeks earlier in the season than other varieties. They don't set nearly as many seeds/berries as their larger cousins, which explains why they have more energy to produce more flowers. From late spring to fall, the tricolor velvety red, orange and yellow flowers bloom continuously to draw in the butterflies and hummingbirds. Deer and rabbits won't touch it!

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 12 inches tall and wide, Little Lucky Red is ideal for use in smaller garden spaces, annual flower bed and as a solo or mixed with other sun-loving plants in combination container gardens.

Spacing:  10 inches apart for mass plantings; 24 inches apart for space between plants 

Cultural Preferences

Lantana are exceptionally easy to grow in most any moist but well drained soil of average fertility and full to mostly sun. We suggest at least 6 hours of direct sunlight for best flowering. When growing in a container make sure to use a container with a hole(s) at the bottom and a quality potting soil or potting mix, or a 50/50 mix thereof. Maintenance is minimal. You can deadhead or shear the plant after the first flush of flowers and that's about it until you cut it back the next spring.
