lantana topiary bent

Zone Columbia Missouri | Liz.schulte34 added on May 28, 2015 | Answered

My lantana topiary bent and is partially broken. Will it survive if I tape it and stake it better? The wind blew it over and broke part of the "trunk."

Though the stem clearly is damaged, it may continue to grow.

I would stake it and secure it with plant ties. Stabilize it as best you can.

I would not wrap the wound with anything, just allow the air to circulate around it. Watch for any bugs or insects as they tend to find a plants weak areas.

Hopefully your plant will continue to bloom for the season!
Good Luck.
