After winter update
This year I decided not to protect my trachys. I had some mixed results so next winter I will protect them.
nanital did the best out of all the unprotected palms
This windmill lost all of its leaves and the spear pulled. Last winter it lost all of its leaves too even though it was protected. I'm probably going to replace it.
Sabal minor was protected and it looks great. It grows so slow I can't risk leaving it unprotected.
This pindo has done great in previous winters. This year i accidentally damged it when the protection over heated. It was over 100 degrees. I built a cold frame so that it gets a head start and recovers. The stems are still green so i am hoping for the best.
Yucca alofolia got a little flattened from the snow.
Cactus bed got some damage.
This is the first year I planted winter annuals. The tropical beds are empty during the winter so I planted ornamental kale and dusty miller. The juniper is in a buried pot. The orleander in the back was protected. The leaves are crispy but the stems are still green so I think it will make it.
