These pretty Lantana camara are also commonly known as ‘yellow sage’ and ‘Jamaican mountain sage’ produce cheerful fragrant blooms over a really long flowering season.

As the name suggests, they do come from warmer climes so will do best in a conservatory, or a bright room although they can also do well outside on summer patio. In the right spot these plants will produce colourful blooms all summer long.

Good light is important for lantanas so choose a spot that receives good sunlight for at least half the day, cold draughts or strong winds are best avoided and in the winter they will need a spot indoors and will start to suffer in temperatures below 6°C. If you do have a sheltered spot outside the bees and butterflies will go mad for the sweet nectar filled flowers.

To encourage more buds, cut off dead flowers and pinch out the leading shoots. As the plant grows it can be repotted next spring into a larger pot with rich potting compost.

These mountain sage plants aren’t particular prone to pests but if you spot any aphids or stickiness on the leaves, give them a good wipe down with soapy water.
