We have Lantana White Lightening across out front slope facing north west. About 15' x 30'. It doesnt get enough sun so we dont get as many white flowers as we would like. It was planted about 5 years ago and has provided a good ground cover. This November, it is starting to have woody "holes" in the slope and I'm wondering if I should have the "holes" cut back . I have been reading on the net to wait until spring for that pruning. Any comments are appreciated.
