Planting Lantana Clippings - Knowledgebase Question

My friend just gave me some lantana clippings and I'm wondering if I can just stick them in the ground, or do I need to keep them in water until they grow roots before planting in the garden?

Lantana usually roots quite readily. I'd plant them in the ground and keep them well watered. Strip some of the lower leaves from the bottoms of the cuttings and plant so there are 2-3 leaf nodes below ground level. The roots will develop at the nodes if you keep the soil moist. Best wishes with your propagation project.
