When To Cut Back Lantana

Q: Although I still have greenery on my lantana, can I cut it back now? 

A: “When to cut back lantana?” has generated gardening controversy for years. Some say cutting it back too early allows ice to form in the hollow stems. Others counter by saying there are plenty of garden plants we cut back in early winter that are not harmed by the water in the stem. Personally, I would wait until the leaves have fallen and then whack it back. Details and documentation at bit.ly/GAlantana.
