Okay, so when I say “freezing” here, I don’t mean really freezing cold like so many other places in the US right now but it did literally freeze 2 nights ago. I covered my hibiscus and other fragile plants so they should be okay.
It’s the lantana that is especially vulnerable to freezing. Last year all our lantana froze and turned black and shriveled up but, by spring, they were blooming and bigger than ever, attracting butterflies and other pollinators.
Here’s something you may not see where you live. This is how cacti are protected here from freezing…styrofoam!
It’s an unusual sight but it’s what people here do. Keep warm wherever you are, however you can…
