PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
We live in Houston and are having extreme drought currently and temps were very hot all summer. We've had lantana for years, but this year we've been noticing this appearing on them. It only seems to affect this particular variety with this color pattern. All of the other colors (purple, orange, white, gold) don't seem to have developed these.
I've had some of my purple coneflowers succumb to aster yellows but never any of my lantana. When it attacks my coneflowers I just pull out and dispose of the affected plants. Fortunately, I've never had it attack all of my coneflowers, just one or two at a time.
