Lantanas are tropical woody shrubs native to Africa and the Americas, deciduous in cooler regions but evergreen in the warmest. Most are cold-hardy only in USDA climate zones 9 through 11. Some are cold-hardy into zones 7 or 8. Lantanas are grown as annuals in northern climates.
They produce loads of small flowers throughout the summer. The flowers attract butterflies.
