    They like to be left alone with little or no fertilizer and very little water. I have seen them growing in the desert of S. Texas in hard ground and no rain.

    I agree with Marvin, less love, more benign neglect and it should do fine. ^-^

    Neither mine or my sisters Lantanas are blooming much this year but they did last year. You can honestly kill your plants with kindness.
