'New Gold' Lantana
Lantana camara 'New Gold'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 8a-11  Find Your Zone >

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 8a, where this Lantana is not 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

Back in the 1995 'New Gold' Lantana won the Georgia Gold Medal Award for it's outstanding attributes, characteristics and overall performance in the garden. It is still considered to be one of if not the best of the low-growing hardy lantanas.

New Gold is one of if not the most profuse bloomers of all the Lantana varieties we grow in our gardens, rivaling Trailing Lavender and Chapel Hill Gold. All summer long and well into fall, the trailing mounds are literally smothered in bright golden-yellow flower clusters that butterflies and hummingbirds are sure to find and flock to! 



Landscape & Garden Uses

The New Gold Lantana grows to about 12 to 18 inches tall and spreads to about 3 to 4 feet wide over time, making it a perfect selection for a low border, in groupings or mass plantings, or to cascade over a wall in the landscape. It also serves very well in pots and hanging baskets, which can be overwintered indoors for those of you who live and garden north of USDA Zone 8a. It is ideal for use annal flowerbeds, along borders, in containers, hanging baskets, spillover walls and along a woodland border.  As an ornamental plant is can be used in Japanese inspired gardens as well as in butterfly gardens, cottage, cut flower, hummingbird, perennial, rock, wildlife and in Xeriscape gardens (low water needs).

Spacing: 24" for solid hedges and mass plantings; 60"+ for space between plants 




Cultural Preferences

CAUTION!  Avoid pruning hardy Lantana in the fall as doing so almost always ensures death of the plant! Wait until new growth begins to emerge in spring to remove dead stems. A mid-summer shearing is okay.

Hardy Lantana are very easy to grow in most any moist to somewhat dry well-drained soil of average to even poor fertility and full to mostly sun. Constantly soggy soil or standing water is problematic. Some light shade is tolerated but plant will grow more dense and produce the most flowers throughout the long flowering season (June to Frost) in full to mostly sun. We suggest at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day for best performance.
