Lantana Plants

Why Are My Potted Lantana Leaves Turning Purple?


Cmarie1978 added on June 3, 2015 | Answered

I have winterized this lantana plant for 2 winters now in my garage. I live in NC. It is growing and has buds, but the leaves are turning purple. I have another lantana in a pot I winterized and it was fine until today. I noticed a few leaves on it turning purple. Is this a fungus? I'm going to put them in the ground if it will help, but I don't want to spread whatever this is, any further. Help!

Purple leaves are generally nutrient deficiencies.

I use Epsom Salt in my garden when I see purple leaves on my plants.
