Full scorching summer sun. New Gold is a recent hybrid with a dense mounding habit and prolific golden blooms throughout the warm season. Since it is sterile and produces no seeds or offsets, it flowers more consistently than most other lantanas. The leaves have a less pungent odor than typical lantanas. Little maintenance and no additional irrigation is required for it to look terrific. Leaves will drop after a freeze; most landscapers will cut it back for the season.
