New e-GRO Alert looks at lacklustre lantana

April 9, 2015 – Are you having trouble with lantana? Slow growth, little branching, or plants that are too big for their container?
This e-GRO alert will focus on some common problems in lantana production.

Lantana is a fantastic annual plant. It grows well in the summer heat, has a profusion of flowers, and, whether in the landscape or in a mixed basket or patio container, can stand up to abuse.

However, it is one of the crops that I consistently see with some sort of challenge during production.

There are three main problems lantana regularly faces: 1) cool temperatures; 2) poor branching; and 3) controlling size. In this e-GRO Alert we will cover each of these and provide some helpful solutions.

More crop culture notes are posted to the e-GRO Alert website.
