Can lantana be overwintered in cold climates?

Lantana will do best in full sun, a minimum of 6 hours of direct sun a day is best. They are great landscape plants, but certainly shouldn't be overlooked as container plants, too. In most North American climates, Lantana are grown as annuals, however, in their native habitat (warm parts of the Americas and southern Africa) they tend to be shrubs. In fact, you may have noticed by the end of the season the older stems on your plants tend to be rather woody - this is showing their shrub tendency. Unless you live in an area where winter temperatures stay above 25 degrees treat them as an annual. In warm winter climates, you can treat them as a perennial or shrub. It is fairly common to see Lantana hedges in southern California. If you live in a cold winter climate and have a greenhouse or sunroom, you should be able to overwinter Lantana indoors. You may also be able to overwinter them in a sunny window, but this will be more difficult.

I loved this. Just wish it was easier to print off. I need to have it in hand in the spring.
