Growing Requirements

  1. Sunlight: White creeping lantana thrives in full sun to partial shade. A minimum of 6 hours of sunlight is required for optimal blooming.
  2. Soil: This plant prefers well-draining, slightly acidic to neutral soil with a pH of 6.0 to 7.0.
  3. Water: Water regularly, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Over-watering can cause root rot and other issues.
  4. Temperature: White creeping lantana is tolerant of a range of temperatures but performs best in temperatures between 60°F (15°C) and 85°F (29°C).

Planting and Propagation

  1. From seed: Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost, transplanting outdoors after the danger of frost has passed.
  2. Cuttings: Take softwood cuttings in spring or early summer, rooting them in a well-draining potting mix.
  3. Division: Divide mature plants in spring or early autumn to propagate.

Care and Maintenance

  1. Pruning: Regularly deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming. Prune lightly in spring or early summer to maintain shape and control growth.
  2. Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring and again in midsummer to promote healthy growth and flowering.
  3. Pest and Disease Control: Monitor for pests such as aphids, whiteflies, and spider mites. Treat infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Fungal diseases can be prevented by ensuring proper air circulation and avoiding over-watering.

Benefits and Uses

  1. Ornamental: White creeping lantana adds color and texture to garden beds, borders, and containers. Its trailing habit makes it perfect for hanging baskets and covering slopes.
  2. Pollinator Attraction: The plant's nectar-rich flowers attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, promoting a healthy and diverse ecosystem in your garden.
  3. Erosion Control: White creeping lantana is effective in controlling soil erosion, thanks to its dense growth habit and spreading nature.
