This #lantana #bigsage plant is so massive its gonna get a major chop. Im thinking about making it a standard cus its huge and tall. Lets see how that plan works out. Then i can underplant it better. #stillgoingstrong

Its hard with a cellphone to get a good pic of things especially the sky moon etc @terrimclaughlin all you can do it make sure its at least clear as you can get. Most cellphones now a days have a pro part in the pics section or a nighttime photos part to use. But on mine it says to hold very still when using some of the features so its hard for me I have the shakes a lot lol. I just do my best I can with what nature provides for me at that moment because sometimes you have to be very quick. Lol

2w
comment

And lots of practice too helps @terrimclaughlin so keep practicing toss out pics that are not to your liking keep the best of the bunch and keep at it.. If you look at all my pics you can see I have very very bad pics too lol

Lots of buds on that. My lantana has really struggled to flower this year. I grow it in a pot and I think it’s probably time I repotted and fed it, or maybe take some fresh cuttings to start again next year.

Thanks Cyndi 😊 I almost planted it in the ground this year but left them in the pots. I think I’ll take them out before winter and bring them into temporary conditions in the house (somewhere, not sure which room yet) then give them a new home in spring. Will try cuttings too as a back up 👍🏼

"Big" is right! 🤯 Mine got a trim this morning and it was only a tiny fraction of this size. 😂❤️ I really just wanted to shape it... it's first cutting.b❤️

comment
cyndi

I was hoping it would be tall Janice @lovestogarden but the front branches were to heavy to stay upright like the back ones have with no support. Lol this one was started as a cutting and for years i kept it contained in a small pot. Its trying to make up for all the years of confinement I believe lol

One of my favourite shrubs. I just wish it was more hardy in the U.K. I have to keep mine in the spare room over winter 😳

2w
comment
cyndi

Mine dies back completely and regrows every spring. @richard.spicer.7906 it snowed this last winter here even. If in ground I would mulch heavy for your area. But in container unless its wrapped mulched and covered i would bring inside. Or greenhouse.

2w
comment
richard.spicer.7906

Ah, that’s interesting. I always thought they needed min temp of 10 Celsius but maybe they can cope with lower. I need to experiment with them I think.

2w
comment
cyndi

They do well at making cuttings too Rich @richard.spicer.7906 they like sandy well drained soils. Thats what mine is in. Morning sun afternoon shade but i had it growing in full few yrs back in containers just had to water a lot more.

2w
comment
jeatacake

I have some growing from seed here @richard.spicer.7906 with one about to flower. I think our problems here are the much longer, colder, wetter & darker winters. All these factors combine to make overwintering tropical or semi tropical plants a huge challenge here. I saw this in Kansas last year. It seemed that a surprising number of plants can survive a short sharp winter. Last winter here seemed never ending, until we flipped straight into a hot summer in May!

2w

richard.spicer.7906

Ah yes, the downfalls of a long wet cold Uk winter! @cyndi @jeatacake - and your right Jeff that we’ve flipped from one extreme to the other this year!

comment

Yes theyblike full sun but can handle full day sun afternoon shade thats what this one is in. This comes back every year. I grew it in a container for the longest time and it stayed small last year (right before got cold)i went full gusto and planted in ground. Covered in heavy mulch and its grown i would swear a 100 times the size it was lol. Im thrilled you got 7 babies out them to grow. Put a few in pots for green house just in case and can replant in soil after last frost to give it more👇👇

👆👆 @daisy-jane time to grow strong roots over a whole spring summer and fall then mulch heavy for cold winters. I let the tops die back on mine and cut them after last freeze is over.

My #bigsage sure has gotten #big its a jungle in here now and will def have to replan this bed. Will trim the #lantana up laters here they die back in winter and come back. #Messygardenbeds so need to rethink them. Theres also some daylily in this bed i think ill put near the others since they are young and wont even start to bloom this year. So much work to do. Maybe next year they will look better than this year lol #wartsandall

#inground #lantana can get very #large . if #containergrown best to use a large pot because roots take a lot of space but plant is limited on growth in #container #bigsage #bigsage-lantanacamara

richard.spicer.7906

I’ve just got my container grown plants out onto the front porch now that the night temperatures are warm enough. It looks a little sorry for itself but hopefully should recover quickly. Yours looks much bigger, I guess cause it’s in the ground as you mention.

Yes Rich @richard.spicer.7906 cis its in ground. In containers you have to water more often they suck up water and make large roots so maybe a top off of soil as well if you see its draining water quickly. A liquid fertilizer food is what i give mine.

I’m gonna try feeding this year, not done my lantanas in previous years but it’s the third year in the same pot so will feed now and then next year I will repot with refresh soil 👍🏼
