I live in northern NJ. I bought this huge Lantana from monrovia --it was potted and needs to be carried on wheels. Well I was supposed to move it indoors but it didnt seem like there was any frost....but then we had the hurrucane sandy and 1 night of snow----all the leaves are now dead and those branches that the leaves were on seem nonviable but I do not think the roots froze. I brought it indoors now but obviously too late.

Is there a chance it is able to be revived? What should I do to it to help? prune it?? [Linked Image]

Welcome, herman. You and all of your neighbors have been in our thoughts.
If the roots did not freeze, you have a very good chance. Let it rest a while and then check for brittle branches. Anything that snaps apart when you bend it is probably dead and you can cut it off. That allows the plant to spend energy on the savable parts instead of expending on the really dead ones. It may not be quite as big next year as it was this year but should come back and share the glory with you.
Good luck.
