Yellow Trailing Lantana, scientifically referred to as Lantana montevidensis 'Alba', is a vibrant and low-growing perennial known for its sprawling habit and profusion of bright yellow flowers. Despite the 'Alba' nomenclature, which traditionally denotes white flowers, this variety is celebrated for its cheerful yellow blooms that cover the plant from spring through fall, providing a continuous splash of color in the garden. This variety is particularly valued for its drought tolerance, ease of maintenance, and its ability to attract a variety of pollinators, including butterflies and bees.

Growing to about 1 to 2 feet tall and spreading 3 to 5 feet wide, Yellow Trailing Lantana forms a dense mat of foliage that makes an excellent ground cover, effectively suppressing weeds and covering bare spots in the landscape. Its trailing growth habit also makes it a perfect choice for hanging baskets, cascading over walls, or spilling from containers.

Adapted to full sun, Lantana montevidensis 'Alba' thrives in well-draining soil and is remarkably drought-tolerant once established, making it an ideal selection for xeriscapes and water-wise gardens. It is a robust plant capable of withstanding hot and sunny conditions, often used in areas where other plants might struggle.

In landscaping, Yellow Trailing Lantana is often utilized for its ornamental appeal and versatility. Its compact growth habit makes it suitable for small spaces, and its vibrant yellow blooms add significant visual interest to patios, decks, and outdoor living areas. Additionally, its ability to attract pollinators enhances the ecological value of the garden.

Overall, Yellow Trailing Lantana is a low-maintenance and attractive plant, ideal for adding splashes of color, attracting wildlife, and creating interest in sunny garden areas. Its ease of care, adaptability to a range of growing conditions, and long blooming season make it a popular choice for gardeners looking to create vibrant and sustainable landscapes.
