    IT is hot and humid... should I...???

    Cut back all this lantana that is growing everywhere? And my passion vine has no passion... it is so skimpy looking... so should I just trim it back a lot? Anything I could plant after I cut back and trim? The garden is gonna look BARE!!!!!!!!

    MAV, I don't know anything about Passion plant, but I know lots of plants get really leggy if you don't cut them back. I say cut them and see what happens! Here is a link to some info on it:

    I dug around the first two pages of a Google search on Lantana. It sounds like it is considered a WEED in the South!

    Well lantana does fill in the space when everything else is dried up. And I love the way it attracts all the butterflies. DS says "Look.. and insect just flew by-LOL!"

    Yes, I think you are right that Lantana is the weed of the South!!! I am trying to cut it back to make room for other plants. If you want to fill a space you can choose from yellow, white, purple, pastel colored Lantana!!!!
