Pest and Disease Management
General pest and disease practices as listed in notes. Scout for white flies and treat as needed.
-Use caution when using Florel, leaf drop can occur.
-Warm, bright growing conditions are optimum. Where early spring conditions do not allow production under these parameters consider growing lantana for late spring to summer sales.
-Cold and wet growing conditions can double the crop time.
-Luscious Grape will take an additional two weeks of production time.
The Luscious collection of Lantana will vary somewhat in form. Luscious Grape is a true weeper, Luscious Lemonade is more upright - mounding in habit, and Luscious Citrus Blend is a vigorous, mounding variety.
