Sasanqua Camellia...Looking On The Bright Side
Here is a sweet sasanqua camellia blooming today. I'm concentrating on that because I can't think about the ferns, geraniums, plumbago, potato vine, limonium and begonias (that were still blooming) that have been zapped. We haven't had this kind of a killing freeze for a number of years...and when we did I had a much less diverse yard with fewer sensitive plants. All I can do is wait and see what comes back. Although I have to say...I'm not too sad about the limonium...they've gotten too big for where they are and they actually look pretty sad each spring from (less) cold weather. So now I'll have all kinds of lovely dead looking plants for a while until it's safe to prune them back...about March or so. For now the dead branches will protect the core of the plant and hopefully allow it to survive.
