I had lantana planted in my flowerbed last year and was told that it would come back. It looks dead. Is there something that I can do to help it along or do I need to be patient OR is it not coming back?

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 did not freeze over the winter months, your lantana should begin producing new growth at soil level. While you're waiting, you can prune down the old dead stems. Hope your plant made it through the winter!
