covering lantana roots
Are dogwood leaves good for covering lantana roots?
Dogwood leaves are fine for covering beds and will not harm lantana roots. I assume you're leaving them in the ground for the winter and covering the area? You can leave the leaves on the bed next year as well and cover them with other mulch if you like. The leaves will break down and feed the soil and will not hurt anything.
