The Q&A Archives: lantana

Question: Have 2 plants of lantana in pots, how do I get them to bloom? They were blooming when I bought them, them blooms fell of and have not bloomed since? I keep them in the sun and water when getting limp.

Answer: Lantana seems to flower best when the weather is hot but after the flowers fade it develops black berries and then rests before flowering again. I just trim off the faded flowers before they set seeds which seems to make them bloom on a faster cycle. Try pruning your lantana back a little to encourage new flowering growth. Hope it works for you!
