The plant produces small, tight clusters of showy flowers and spreads or trails up to 10 feet. Trailing lavender lantana's landscape uses include bank covers to control erosion, raised beds and hanging baskets. This fast-growing tropical blooms year-round in frost-free areas, but grows as annual or in containers in cooler climates. Choose an area with full sun to light shade with well-drained soil. Lavender trailing lantana tolerates some shade, but blooms best in full sun. Space plants 5 feet apart, or closer at about 18 inches if you want faster coverage of an area.
1 Water newly planted trailing lantana enough to keep soil moist, but not soggy. Once established, the plants tolerate drought and only require occasional watering. Water plants once a week, if they do not receive at least 1 inch of rainfall weekly.
2 Place a layer of mulch around newly planted trailing lantana to help prevent weeds until the plant covers the area.
3 Feed trailing lantana with a slow-release fertilizer in the spring and again mid-summer for vigorously growing plants.
4 Prune perennial trailing lantana back to 6 to 12 inches from ground level in the spring. A hard pruning removes old growth to reinvigorate the plant.
