Early spring or fall are the best times to divide and transplant lantana. Once you dig out a large clump with its roots, you can divide it into several pieces by cutting straight down with a trowel. This won't hurt the plant as long as each clump has some roots attached. Then transplant each piece to its new location and simply keep the plant moist until it gets established.
