Hyacinth Plant


Anonymous added on June 2, 2015 | Answered

I recently purchased a hanging basket with a lantana in it. What are the berries on this plant? Is that a future bloom? Or a spent one? I live in zone 6 and have it hanging in a sunny location. I water it daily because it really dries out quickly. Should I plant it in a planter? Also, can this plant be carried over to next spring and how? Thanks! Renee’

Lantana berries develop from the spent blooms. he plants can successfully be grown in many types of containers, so transplanting from the hanging basket to a planter, is fine. Regardless, they will still require more watering than those left in the ground, usually on a daily basis as you are already doing. You can keep it in your garage or a heated greenhouse (just above freezing). The house is usually warmer than 50 degrees at night, but if you have a location that is bright and sunny, but doesn't freeze (50 degrees at night) 70-80 degrees during the day, it could possibly make it through the winter. Or you can let the blooms go to seed and collect the seed, and start the plant from seed in Feb. of next season.
