This is what remains of my most luscious sub-tropical bed, the result of 3 nights in a row with lows of right at 20 degrees. There were many more nights below freezing as well in this brutual winter, the coldest in 20 years. But no fear, these plants will be back, although it will take till fall before they begin to approach their previous beauty. Unfortunately, many of my marginal palms will not return, and are down for the count. Such is the evolution of a garden.
