Latin name of the genus and species of the plant claimed: Lantana camara L.

Varietal denomination: ‘LANZ0007’.


The present invention comprises a new Lantana, botanically known as Lantana camara L., and hereinafter referred to by the variety name ‘LANZ0007’.

‘LANZ0007’ is a product of a planned breeding program. The new cultivar ‘LANZ0007’ has large golden yellow to orange flowers with an orange throat, early flowering and excellent floriferousness, dark green foliage, dense mounding habit, and good heat tolerance.

‘LANZ0007’ originates from the self-pollination of a plant designated as ‘LCE665-1’ made in July 2009 in a greenhouse in Gilroy, Calif., USA. The parent ‘LCE665-1’ has yellow flower color, a bushy plant habit, and displays taller growth than ‘LANZ0007’.

The resulting seed was sown in June 2010 in a greenhouse in Gilroy, Calif. and ‘LANZ0007’ was selected as one flowering plant within the progeny of the stated cross in November 2010.

The first act of asexual reproduction of ‘LAN0007’ was accomplished when vegetative tip cuttings were propagated from the initial selection in December 2010 in a greenhouse in Gilroy, Calif.


Horticultural examination of plants grown from cuttings of the plant initiated in the spring of 2011 in Gilroy, Calif., and continuing thereafter, has demonstrated that the combination of characteristics as herein disclosed for ‘LANZ0007’ are firmly fixed and are retained through successive generations of asexual reproduction.

‘LANZ0007’ has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary significantly with variations in environment such as temperature, light intensity, and day length.

A Plant Breeder's Right for this cultivar was applied with the European Union Office (CPVO) on Jun. 18, 2014; No. 2014/1617.

The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be basic characteristics of the new variety. The combination of these characteristics distinguishes this Lantana as a new and distinct variety.


The accompanying photographic drawings show typical flower and foliage characteristics of ‘LANZ0007’ with colors being as true as possible with an illustration of this type.

The photographic drawings show in FIG. 1 a close view of an inflorescence and in FIG. 2 a young flowering plant.


The plant descriptions and measurements were taken in Gilroy, Calif. in November 2014. The plants were approximately 6 months old and were growing in 1 gallon pots in a greenhouse.

The aforementioned photographs FIGS. 1 and 2 were taken in mid-April in Andijk, Netherlands. The plant is about 12 weeks old.

Color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart (R.H.S.) 2001.
