Plums for zone 3
The entire tops of my Superior and Alderman plum trees were winter killed. Both are sending new shoots from the graft area, but the shoots are so close to the graft, I not sure if it is the root stock or the scion wood. In any event, it looks like I need a hardier plum to plant next. year.
I also lost my Northstar and Evans cherry. Both of these are also sending up new shoots. The Evans is on it's own root stock so I may see what a shoot or sucker does.
Only one apple tree had no damage. 4 others were killed or damaged.
I thought that I had about 20% damage on my 1/2 high blueberry plants, but late opening leaves dropped that to 10% damage. Have a great berry set this year.
Boyne raspberry (very hardy) canes in a 53 ft row had about 30% damage. Today, I cut out about 1/3 of the florocanes because they were killed back to within 18" of the ground. There will still be a decent crop with the remaining 2/3s of the canes.
Even the Carmine Jewel had some top damage between 10% to 30%. I hope that we don't get too many more winters like the last one. Too cold (30 below F) / too early (mid Dec).
