Lantana-AGAIN

I posted about this same lantana in 2006. I've tried not fertilizing, fertilizing, deheading, deseeding, etc. Still only very few flowers. The only thing I can be sure of is a green bush. This year I noticed some of the leaves on one has some kind of black "blight". This has only happened this year. Every fall I say I'm digging them up--then the next spring I have new hope. Should I give up on them?

    i have miss huff in my back yard and never have to do anything to it.the plant seems to be maintenance free,also my dogs love to eat the leaves. miss huff has no berries and non poisonous im assuming since my dogs never seem to be bothered by it.you may be giving the plant way to much attention. i have divided mine and planted it in several locations and it grows like crazy.
