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?

I am getting prepared to transplant about 30 lantanas for a customer. A&M says do it in the winter and cut it back to about five inches. I hope it works.

Hiya-let me know how your transplanting turns out! I just decided to prune mine and move the others this coming weekend.

Hi there. I found you again. I just couldn't pull up your profile. Lantana still in the dirt.
