Lantanas Have Become Leggy

Q: I have some white and lavender colored lantanas that are in their fourth year and have gotten very leggy. They bloom in late summer/early fall. When they come back next year do I need to prune them? 

A: Contemplating the Christmas freeze we just endured, I think you had lantana plants. Varieties that are usually winter-hardy, such as ‘Mozelle’, ‘Chapel Hill Gold’ and ‘Miss Huff’ may sprout from their roots. Otherwise, make a local nursery happy and purchase new plants this spring.
