frostbitten oleanders

celrnFebruary 21, 2007

My oleander tress of just 2 years got severely frostbitten this winter. On some of the trees the leaves are very brittle and are a greyish green, not a bright healthy green. On s few of the trees it seems to have affected all the leaves. The branches still seem to have flexibility. Is there anything I can to do save these trees?

If you are zone 8 and above, they should leaf out again nicely by May or June. Depending on how cold it got, the stems should be ok. You'll know whether to trim some of the stems when the new growth occurs. Good luck. dl
