Bandito Lantana has a compact, mounding habit which makes it perfect for flower beds, containers and hanging baskets. They have large blooms that provide an endless display of color all summer long. Though the plants are more compact, the blooming power is just as vigorous as the larger varieties, and they perform just as well in landscapes are other lantana. Bloom clusters of small blooms are held out above dark green foliage. The foliage is fragrant but not everybody likes the way it smells.
Lantana is the ultimate landscape plant. All lantanas are heat and drought tolerant, and their blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds. They bloom continuously from spring to first fall frost. They do not require deadheading. In warmer areas they are evergreen. In the mid-south they can comeback after dying back in the winter if the winter is mild enough.
Bandito Lantana is easy to grow and low maintenance. They will thrive in average soils and will tolerate poorer soils. Once established, they do not need a lot of water. Lantana in containers should be watered regularly.
