Lantana Plants

Lantana Hasn’t Come Up

Lois added on April 30, 2015 | Answered

My Lantana plants were supposed to be perennials but have not appeared this spring. Is it too early or are they dead? They are in a sunny spot with wood chips.

Lantana is considered a tender perennial meaning it typically doesn't overwinter well in the garden because it's too cold and won't tolerate frost. So, there is a possibility your lantana didn't survive. However, that isn't to say impossible - a harsh winter coupled with a cold spring isn't a great recipe for early spring growth. I would give it some more time.
