Does anyone know if lantana will come back if you cut it to the ground?
Mine got some weird disease that looked like a hole with a wide white ring around it.
So I cut it to ground level.
I'd be thrilled if it comes back up from the woody stem.

Deborah, My mom used to chop the heck outta hers and it always grew back even prettier. That was when we were in CA, so I would venture to guess yes, yours will survive unless the disease got the entire plant.

We used to live in Sacramento and North Highlands, which is just outside of Sacramento.

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!
