The Q&A Archives: Hanging Basket Lantana

Question: My wife and I purchased a Lantana in a basket.It is in a spot which gets about 3 hours of sunlight,but withers daily,and needs watering again.Any suggestions?

Answer: You may need to repot your lantana so you won't have to water so frequently. Plants in containers get really thirsty because their roots can bake in the hot sun. Your plant probably has only a few roots because of the heat and can only drink up so much water - not enough to support the top of the plant. By putting it into a larger pot it will be able to grow a larger root system and won't be so prone to wilting. Best wishes with your lantana!
