Last Night's Hard Freeze - Central Atlantic region
Ouch...Looks like last night was a disaster for the hydrangeas and lots of other plants. Blankets and other coverings did NOTHING. I worked the night shift and when I got home, every leaf on everything was frozen solid right down to the ground!
This was reported to have been a near certainty from OH through PA, MD, DE, NJ, and parts of NY.
I've only owned my own property for a handful of years and don't recall the plants ever having gotten hit that hard.
My dumb question is: If all the leaves on everything are now darker green and completely limp, is the growth done for or does it need to be completely shriveled up to a crisp to be considered so?
