Wow, all the reports I read indicated that Lantana were not favored by deer--they must be REALLY hungry. Your Lantana could certainly use some water, especially if you are growing a newer fancier cultivar. (The older, wilder types are, I think, probably more drought-tolerant.) It is hot, I mean HOT in Texas too! I think the whole country is breaking records for hottest summer ever. Hard on plants AND people. Thanks for the report from Missouri; I appreciate your comment! Hope it cools down for you soon.
Great article as usual Carrie.
I've got Lantana here in the Arkansas Ozarks. It is however in a large container, So it does'nt have a chance to wonder off anywhere.
Deer have totally destroyed my Hibiscus. I'm usually sympathic for the deer but not at the expense of my Hibiscus. This fall that deer is history in my freezer,compliments of my SIL.
It is hot and very dry here. Our oaks and Dogwoods are dieing. Am watering the fig and container plants. I'm keeping water out for the birds. I was worried about my cats catching the birds but only one bird was caught.The others are super cautious now. I think my cats are too well fed and lazy.LOL
