Hardwood Propagation of Lantana Camara L. for Green Environment

Lantana is popular for its growth and flowering throughout the heat of summer and while it is a tender woody perennial, is most commonly used as an herbaceous annual. Flower colors vary, ranging from yellow to deep red and purple, and foliage with green or variegated leaf margins. Growth habits for different lantana cultivars vary from dwarf, highly compact cultivars for containers to large cultivars for use in landscapes.To determine effect of indole 3-butyric acid (IBA) on rooting of L.camara cuttings were treated with 1, 10, 100 and 1000mg/liter of IBA. Tap water was used as control. Except at 1mg/liter, IBA improved rooting of L.camara cuttings in all concentrations used, however, IBA at 100mg/liter gave the greatest root production rate as indicated by highest rooting percentage, highest primary root number and longest roots. It was admitted that the teaching material that used hardwood propagation of L.camara was effective for education of the sustainability environment education and plant propagation.
