Droopy Lantanas

We recently planted two lantana topiaries. They’re our absolute favorite. However, this year they are very droopy and appear lifeless. What could be causing this?

ANSWERS

Most likely it is a watering issue. There may be a gap in the soil that is keeping the water from getting to the roots or just too little water. Flood the place where they are planted to make sure that the soil is all filled in and then make sure they are getting enough water after that.

Plants Not Flowering

My lantana flowers on my plants fell off the same week that I brought them home. They are in two pots on my patio. What happened?

The flowers drop off after one day, but these should be replaced by new ones from the same stem. Could be your plants are suffering from some type of stress or pests issue? Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/lantana/lantana-plants.htm

How to Keep Lantana Blooming

I bought a lantana and it has stopped blooming, formed small green pods but no new flowers. What do I do?

ANSWERS

Cut off the pods. These are seed pods and when these form, the plant thinks it no longer needs to flower as it has accomplished its goal. Plants flower so that they can reproduce. If you prevent them from reproducing, they will keep flowering in order to keep trying to make seeds.

Lantanas

What is making the leaves on my Lantana turn brown, and they have not bloomed yet?

ANSWERS

Most likely it is a watering issue. There may be a gap in the soil that is keeping the water from getting to the roots or just too little water. Flood the place where they are planted to make sure that the soil is all filled in and then make sure they are getting enough water after that. The non-blooming is likely caused by stress, probaly due to the watering issue. Additionally, you can try adding some more phosphorus, such as bone meal, to the soil around your plant.

Lantana

I have finally broken down and purchased my first lantana ever! I was thrilled at how much color it added to my yard! We live on the marsh and it was wonderful until they all stopped blooming and produced berries instead. I can’t tell you my disappointment during my July 4th party when no one was able to see all of my hard work and fabulous (or formally) plants! The types are Bandana Cherry, Cherry Sunrise, and Ham and Eggs. Do you have any suggestions or helpful information? I have read to prune back the plant, cut all of the berries off and to just leave them be because they are shutting down their growth season. Have I made a mistake and spent an absolute fortune on a high-maintenance plant, or is there a solution?

You won't like this answer but deadheading lantana and preventing seeds will encourage more blooms. If there are no flowers now, I would trim the whole thing back a few inches and allow it to regrow. This is easier than trying to cut off each "branch." If your season is long enough, you may get another batch of flowers.
