Lantana Plants
Q.

lantana with bare branches

Zone Northern Virginia | Huntcon added on July 15, 2015 | Answered

My Lantanta is blooming well but has bare branches without leaves or blooms on one side of the plant (tree). The plant is 6 years old or older and has been in the same pot all this time,and it is a tree 4 ft tall. I am fertilizing twice a week, perhaps it is too much. It is in a greenhouse in the winter. Please let me know if I should cut back the dead branches, re-pot it or what. Thanks.
