The Q&A Archives: Lantana dead

Question: Yesterday I bought 6 Lantana plants and planted them in my flower bed immediately. This morning, even after watering, one of them is dead. Is there a product guarantee on plants purchased at Home Depot or am I just out of luck? The others all lived and are looking great even after one day. I followed all instructions and yet the one plant still died.

Answer: It's really unusual for a plant to die overnight - are you sure it's dead and not just suffering from transplant stress? Transplant stress can cause wilted foliage and an overall puny looking plant. In a week it should recover. If it doesn't you can have it replaced by taking it back to the garden center where you purchased it. Take your receipt and ask for an exchange. Best wishes with your lantanas!
