Re: Spring/ Holli's tropicals/ Plumeria

Hi Noreen,
  Yes they did freeze.  I will know better this year.  I  just wish it would 
stop with the flurries already!  I want to get out in my  yard and start the 
clean up.  But it has been so clod here.
Thanks for the advice!

Did they  freeze???  Or do they just look like dead sticks??   Plumeria  can 
dormant in cool weather, where they lose their foliage, and   pretty much 
dead.  They are the easiest plants to overwinter in  cool  climates.  They 
literally don't need ANY water or sun at  all when  dormant.  People take 
them out 
of the ground, or pots  and shake off the  soil, wrap up and stick in 
under beds,  etc.  Then pull them back  out in the spring.   Some folks  will 
just take the pots and stick them  in the garage or dark corner  (protected 
freezes) and let them go  dormant....no water, no  light....then take them 
in spring and begin to  slowly water, and  slowly acclimate to 
foliage appears.   Really  easy to overwinter.
For future reference, if yours did indeed not make  it.....but hopefully  
are just dormant.
P.S. Congrats on the  flamingo.
