I planted Lantana in August. I watered as I was told, but now in February it looks dead. How do I tell if they are alive or not?
Lantana is fully hardy in zones 10-11. Top growth dies back to the ground in zone 9 but will re-emerge in spring. If there have been nighttime temps below 32 F, that will ruin the foliage. It is a tropical plant and does best in warm weather. Here is more lantana information from the Sandoval County Master Gardeners: http://sandovalmastergardeners.org/plant-of-the-month-lantana/
