Hi and Welcome! to ATP

Depends a lot upon where you're growing it. If you could put your approx. location (city, state) in your personal profile, that info will come up in each post you put up, and will make it easier for folks to answer your questions.

Thank you for answering so quickly. I have added to my profile. Didn't know what some of the questions meant. Not a green thumb or a .techie

Welcome to ATP Billie! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

When you say vining, do you mean trailing? As in growing all over the ground?
When you ask how long they bloom; do you mean how many months there are flowers on the plant or do you mean *when* do they bloom?

Does this look like your lantana?
Trailing Lantana (Lantana montevidensis 'Trailing Lavender')

Yes that is the plant I have. I wanted to know if it will bloom all summer. I live near Mobile, AL. I know we're in zone 8, but didn't know there was an a and b.

I am in your same zone. I have one & it begins blooming what I consider late. Let me think now as best I can as to exactly when it begins it's bloom period. I'm going to say July. They do not begin blooming in spring. However, they continue blooming later than many other things. Mine is still blooming & will continue at least through September. I imagine yours will run along more or less the same time periods. I like them a lot because the butterflies & hummingbirds can feed at them and I don't have a whole lot of other things blooming at this time of year. All the daylilys have finished blooming, bulbs are done blooming. They do handle the searing heat as well as drought VERY well which is a major plus in my book. They will also root along the stems if you have some nice mulch around them & bury a stem in the mulch. Next spring, you will find roots on that stem & can cut it off from the parent plant & plant it somewhere else. Or you can just let it "crawl" & take over a larger space.

Thank you so much. That was the answer I hoped for. I was debating yanking it out of my flower bed. Now I'm happy to have it and will let it spread.

You're most welcome! Smiling And I'm glad to hear you're going to keep it. In the spring, when you see new leaves on it - give it a little time to show you where the new growth is going to extend to & then cut back any old, spent, dead, branches. Give it some nice compost or fertilizer & let it take things from there.
