Has anybody here tried propagating lantana through seeds? How does it work? Thanks.May 17, 2023 at 5:15 pm Replyc chickPrivate messageGreenhorn
We have a lot of lantana growing around the house but I’ve never seen a sprout from seeds.
But here a trivia: the ripe (purple blackish colour) seeds are edible and are consumed like blueberries. Try it, it’s sweet. 😉May 17, 2023 at 5:45 pm ReplyLadynaturePrivate messageGreenhorn
Oh that’s interesting; they really bear numerous seeds so I thought they do propagate by this means.
I can’t wait to try eating them, thanks for that infoMay 17, 2023 at 6:01 pm ReplyRosalynPrivate messageExpert gardener
I’m afraid what @cchick has observed is not true for lantana. It’s even mentioned in this article that lantana could indeed be propagated by seeds: https://www.nature-and-garden.com/gardening/lantana-planting-care.html
Seeds sprout (although cuttings are common) but for best germination results, it must be soaked in warm water overnight to soften the coat before sowing. Then it could take up to 2 mos before finally transplanting outdoor when the weather gets hotter.May 18, 2023 at 1:07 pm Reply
