How do you prune lantana to keep it compact and flowering?
My 'Miss Huff' grows to mammoth size. This year I've decided to keep it compact - about 4'x4' at most, yet it doesn't enjoy flowering until it reaches 5'x4'. I pruned it early last month, reducing it by a third to a half, and it refused to put off more than 4 flower clusters. It's now double what it had been pruned to and should be flowering soon... but it's too large now and needs trimming again before it goes berserk! I'm having the same problem with a purple spreading lantana.
The banks here have tiny lantanas that are full of blooms. How do they manage to keep them so tiny and still flowering?
