    Why Lantana not flowering?

    Too Much Shade – Lantana needs full sun in order to bloom properly and that means at least six hours of full sun, eight or more is even better. When flowering plants like lantana are deprived of sunlight, they lack the energy to bloom. Excess TLC – When plants have evolved in tough conditions like lantana has, too much care can give them the impression that they’re living the easy life and don’t need to worry about reproducing. Without a need to reproduce, lantana has no motivation to bloom, so lay off the deep waterings and heavy fertilizer. Lace Bug Insects – Lantana plants are generally pretty pest resistant, but they can be bothered by lantana lace bug insects. These pests feed on the leaves, and their damage often resembles that of leafhoppers. It can stress the plants so much that they refuse to bloom. If everything else seems right, but your lantana still won’t bloom, look for tiny insects on the undersides of the leaves. You can kill them with insecticidal soap. Once your plants recover, they should bloom happily again.
