The lantana in my garden are sporting tiny green and black berry-like clumps where the flowers were. I'm new to gardening, but wonder if they are setting seed. We are in zone 7 (near Charlotte, NC) and are in a drought. I have been watering sometimes twice a day to keep things alive. Do I leave the berry-like clumps on the lantana or do I spread them over the ground now to get new lantana next year or catch the berries and plant them later on? AH

Hi Angela!! Just leave them and let them dry up( The berry like clumps) when they are brown you can either take them off or let them fall where they are if you want a thicker group to come up next year,, That what I did and mine were fuller this year! OR take them off and plant them where you want more!!
