Questions about Lantana

Thank you all for the 'Get Well' wishes.  I am trying!!!  

Pam, I will make it out your way...some day soon!  Thank you for saving them.

So, while I am in bed; half asleep, half zone- out thanks to my meds, I decided to transplant my lantana.  But since I have never done this I thought I would ask my fellow gardening experts since I refuse to sit here and surf the net when I should be napping while my babies nap.  (Mommy naps when babies nap-always!)


  • Can I transplant Lantana?  
  • When is the best time to do this?  (I have been told not to prune this plant until the spring time and when it's showing signs of new growth.) 
  • Does it have any special needs? 
  • It seems to be a hardy plant and we love it's yellow flowers---how it attracts butterflies to our courtyard so we want to move the ones that have been planted around our trees to new beds along the front of our home.  Or would this be a bad idea?

  2. You have pride in how bad your hands look.
  3. You have a decorative compost container on your kitchen counter.
  4. You can give away plants easily, but compost is another thing.
  5. Soil test results actually mean something.
  6. IPM rules!
  7. You’d rather go to a nursery to shop than a clothes store.
  8. You look for gardens open to the public whenever you go on vacation.
  9. Your non-gardening spouse is actually getting involved with your garden endeavors...digging ponds, building bird houses, watering, pruning, turning compost piles, planting...
