Worst hit were camellias. Blooms that were wide open turned brown. Partly open buds have brown edges now. Tight buds are opening up as if nothing happened. A few days of warm opens new blossoms.
Bloom Day Camellias
Bloom Day Daffodils
Daffodils were prettier last week than this, but more are coming on every day.
Bloom Day Hyacinths
Earliest Hyacinths are done, mid-season hyacinths are just opening,
Some are just coming out of the ground. Just like Daffodils, the season can be extended by planting cultivars that bloom at different times.
Loebner magnolias that were open were ruined by the freeze.
New blossoms have already started opening.
All the buds do not open at once, fortunately.
Tea Olive is more sensitive to heat than to cold. Smells so good!
My Rosemary is a shy bloomer. This is the only bloom seen so far.
Shrimp Plant is a tough tropical under cover of pine trees.
