: I live in Jackson, MS. I have two beds under Bradford Pear Trees in my yard. My lantana was gourgeous for about a month. Now the blooms are gone and my leaves look like they have been burned. They are black, brown, and crinkling up. *note-we have been receiving more rain than normal for this time of year. I have fertilized them about a week ago but they still look terrible. I don't want to loose them. Help me please.
I'm not sure what the problem is, but I would suggest you prune them back by one third. Don't fertilize with a synthetic fertilizer if they seem burned. You could use fish emulsion.
