Lantana trees are shrub trees that can grow up to 8 feet tall. The shrubs can reach 4 feet in width and produce blue, orange, pink, red and white flowers. Lantana trees thrive in direct sunlight and are known to attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Lantana trees produce gold and chartreuse foliage and bloom in the summer and fall. Lantana varieties include bandanna cherry lantana trees that produce yellow, orange and red blooms, bandanna pink lantana trees that bloom large pink flowers, lucky peach lantana trees that bear peach flowers that can also be propagated into additional plants and lucky pot-of-gold lantana trees that display vibrant yellow blooms.
