Mother Kru collapsed

Posted by bananafan 9b fl (My Page) on

I planted a kru last year. It was doing so well. Had a couple days of cold in Feb and never did do well since. Now it just bent over and collapsed, but it has a pup which is almost 5 ft tall now. It has been planted on the north side of the yard. Is this plant a cold sensitive one? If it is, should I try to relocate the pup before the same thing happens to it? The only concern I have is on the south end of my yard, there's not much sun. Maybe I will move it to the East side of the yard where there's not so much wind factor, but it does have quite a bit of direct sun. Any advice for baby kru?

Very cold sensitive, as are most, if not all reds. More sun and more warmth is best. My lowest temp this winter was 38 for 2 nights, and almost all my Krus were defoliated, and some needed to be stumped to remove rotten material and allow new growth.
