The Q&A Archives: Lantana groundcover for zone 8

Question: We are looking for something like LAVENDER SWIRL? TRAILING LANTANA
Lantana sellowiana 'Monswee' Plant Patent No. 7626 that can grow in zone 8. Do you have a suggestion as all of your Lantanas seem to require zone 9 or 10.

Thanks for your assistance.

Answer: Jim,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. We are transitioning to a new Q&A system and your question was unfortunately lost in the transition. I have discovered it now and hope this reply is not too late to be of help.

The standard type of trailing lantana can usually go to zone 8b. With a good mulching in for winter you may be able to protect them and get them through just fine. There just is not a hardier type of the trailing lantana.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
