Lantana – it’s alive and well in St. Louis

 If you still have lantana in the ground from last year, don’t dig it out and throw it away – it may still be alive.

Because of the warm winter, my Miss Huff and Star Landing lantanas are both coming back. I’ve uncovered them and cut them back and they seem to be doing well. Covering them with grass clippings and leaves may have helped them get through the winter.

Unfortunately, my ham and eggs is way too sensitive to make it through the winter. I could tell when I cut it back how dry and brittle the branches were.

Chapel Hill, a low-growing yellow, still shows no signs of coming back to life, but I’m going to give it a bit more time.
