Lantana New Gold

Lantana New Gold


Description: Lantana 'New Gold' is a flowering perennial shrub that is prized for its profusion of small, clustered flowers that bloom in shades of bright yellow to golden-orange. The flowers are arranged in dense clusters at the ends of branches and are highly attractive to pollinators such as butterflies and bees. 'New Gold' is known for its continuous bloom throughout the growing season, from spring to frost, providing long-lasting color in the garden. The foliage of 'New Gold' is medium green and has a slightly coarse texture.

Size: Lantana 'New Gold' typically grows to a height and spread of about 18 to 24 inches (45 to 60 centimeters) tall and wide, although individual plants may vary in size depending on growing conditions and pruning practices. It has a compact, mounding growth habit, with stems that may trail or cascade slightly over the edges of containers or garden beds. This makes it an excellent choice for borders, edging, containers, and hanging baskets.

Best Growing Zones: Lantana 'New Gold' is well-suited to regions with warm, temperate climates. It thrives in USDA hardiness zones 9 through 11, where temperatures remain above freezing year-round. 'New Gold' is native to tropical and subtropical regions and performs best in areas with long, hot summers and mild winters. It may be grown as an annual in cooler climates or overwintered indoors in containers.

Soil and Sun Requirements: Lantana 'New Gold' prefers well-drained soil with good fertility and adequate moisture retention. It thrives in full sun exposure, receiving at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight per day. 'New Gold' is tolerant of a wide range of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or rocky soils, as long as they are well-drained. Adequate sunlight is essential for promoting vigorous growth and abundant flowering.

Maintenance: Lantana 'New Gold' is relatively low-maintenance and requires minimal care to thrive. Water regularly during the growing season, especially during periods of drought, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Deadhead spent flowers regularly to promote continuous blooming and prevent self-seeding, as some Lantana cultivars can be invasive in certain regions. Prune as needed to maintain the desired shape and size, removing any dead, diseased, or overgrown branches.
