Plant Miss Huff Hardy Lantana in garden or landscape beds that provide very well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine. That being said, I have one growing in a spot that receives afternoon shade. It grows about half the size as the one I have planted in full sun and produces about a third less flowers. In full sun, make sure to provide plenty of space for Miss Huff as she grows to about 10 feet wide and about 5 to 6 feet tall. If you want to attract butterflies to your garden, it's hard to find a better plant than lantana to do so.

You want to hard prune Miss Huff Lantana one time a year in the mid-spring, when new growth begins to emerge from the base of the plant. Whatever you do, DO NOT prune lantana in fall as this ensures death of the plant! During the growing season, Miss Huff Lantana does not require any pruning, though some folks will shear it about mid-summer to encourage heavier flowering for the rest of the season. In full sun, make sure to provide plenty of space for Miss Huff as she grows to about 10 feet wide and about 5 to 6 feet tall. If you want to attract butterflies to your garden, it's hard to find a better plant than lantana to do so.

I never fertilize my Miss Huff Lantana, though a dose of organic flower food in spring might encourage heavier blooming and deeper green foliage.

Miss Huff Lantana is one tough plant. No amount of heat or sun will harm it - it will only grow better and produce more flowers. When growing in the landscape, there are really no serious problems with insects. Deer can't stand it. Wet soil is about the only thing I can think of that would cause a problem so make sure to plant it in well-drained soil.
