Checking The Lantana Plants

I am keeping close eyes on the two Lantana plants in the backyard. The plant on the west side had plenty of blooms a few days ago, now they are all gone except for some others trying to grow and bloom. The plant on the east side has suddenly burst out with new growth and plenty of blooms. What’s up with this? A plant expert I am not! The Sagos got some Moon Juice today.

    • Hi Diane, they were planted about a month ago, maybe a bit longer so I hope they aren’t root-bound. No green thumb here! If they die, they aren’t costly to replace.

  1. Yes, I think it would be better if they are free in the ground… But they are so beautiful and seems good. Thank you dear John, Love, nia

    • I don’t want to have to run water lines to them, easier to use the trusty old water bucket. Not costly to replace either.

    • Thanks so much, guys!! Based on Kathleen’s comment, I should consider easing back on the waterings. 😊

  2. Lantana. I have a lot of those here also. In So. Cal. we get hot too. They are heat plants, but do need water. I see you have them in pots. Lantana likes to spread out a bit so being in a pot should be temporary. Mine have died in pots if left too long. Find a nice spot and plant them. They will stay alive. They get woody a bit in the Winter but still are good. You can cut them back and they will come back so they are easy. Pretty too.

    • Your in So Cal, OK. Maybe I’m watering too much! I know they don’t need much, but with the extended heat I assumed they need more. I’d have to have my irrigation folks run waterlines to them and plant them too. If they croke, I’ll replace them!
