Black leaves on lantana

popedaApril 22, 2011

We have concluded that you can plant whatever you like here in our dry Hill Country area, twixt Austin and San Antonio, as long as it's yellow lantana. Lately the deer have even been eating the flowers on that.

Worse, we have something that is causing the leaves on a few plants to turn pitch black.

Ideas?

We get something on ours, too. Sometimes it's like a fungus, but also mites or something. Last year I sprayed them with a a combo fungicide/insecticide early & it lasted all summer. Ours are the native Orange/Gold.
