The Q&A Archives: Lantana winter care so plants grow back the next year

Question: We have Lantana growing in our flower beds and would like to know if we cut back the plant will it grow back next year? Or should we just leave it alone and allow it to do it's change on it's own? What do we do here so the plant will come back?

Answer: Lantana is a perennial in mild winter climates and an annual in cold winter climates. If the tops are killed back by frost but the roots do not freeze over the winter months, your lantana should begin producing new growth next spring. Don't do anything to it now - wait until spring and prune away the dead stems. Hope your plant makes it through the winter!
