The Lantanas are Growing
We had such a mild winter and warm month of March that the Ham & Egg Lantana plants are already growing here in SC Kansas (zone 6b). A friend of mine here in town gave me some from her garden. The perennial lantanas have been coming back each year for her for the past six years. Well, they thrived on the south side of my house last summer until frost and now, because of our mild winter and unusually warm early spring, they have broken dormancy and are thriving again. I wasn't sure if they would come back, since they are only supposed to be an annual plant this far north, but it appears, based on my experience and the experience of my friend, that they are an annual if they are sheltered from the north wind. I love lantanas. They have beautiful flowers and attract an array of butterflies.
Does anyone else have experience growing lantanas as a perennial north of zone 7?
