You can’t go wrong with Lucky. It is my go-to lantana series.
Lucky in our trials needed a 5-week liner time and pinch once. We like a tank mix of B-Nine at 2,500 ppm and Cycocel at 750 ppm 2 weeks after transplant. A second application of the same tank mix at approximately 4 to 5 weeks after transplant may be needed.
Midwest, Canada and Northeast Region
In this year’s culture trials, a higher rate of B-Nine at 5,000 ppm tank mixed with Cycocel at 1,000 ppm eliminated the need for a late drench application to contain the plant habit.
South and Southeast Region
Pinch is recommended along with a light B-Nine spray at 1,250 ppm to help tone liners. In our trials, if Lucky Lantana is produced outdoors at appropriate temperatures, no PGR is needed. Please consult lantana finishing temperatures in the culture section.
