Origin & Breeding History: 'Bant Tragol' originated from a selfed cross of the proprietary plant designated '9-2' conducted in July 2004 in Gilroy, California, United States. The new Lantana was developed by the breeder Shifeng Pan as part of a planned breeding program. The resultant seed was sown in a greenhouse in November 2004. In May 2005, a single plant from the progeny was selected by the breeder based on flower colour, decreased seed production and plant growth habit.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Bant Tragol' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2009 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 15 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on May 7, 2009. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 10, 2009. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
