|Lantana thrive in the summer heat but doesn't grow much in the winter and spring. Now is a good time to prune it back, by as much or as little as you wish. It is drought tolerant but should be watered once or twice a week (about an inch of water per week) and it doesn't need to be fed. The more you prune, the more new flowering stems will appear so consider pruning it back now and then pruning it every 4-6 weeks during the growth spurt in summer. Enjoy!
