Lantana prefer a dry site, so if you have received lots of rain, it is possible there is a problem with root rot. Do NOT fertilize at all, if there is a root problem, any fertilizer will add to the problem. Allow the soil to dry surrounding the lantanas, if possible. Prune back approximately one half, try to avoid any wetting of the soil and allow the soil to dry thoroughly prior to watering.
: 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.
