Darn it!  I "rescued" my PCI and LA seedlings from the 14 degrees F weather
last night, but I forgot about my I. cretensis.  Last year they did just
fine as low as 20 degrees F, so yours are probably going to be okay, Bill.
I hope mine were tough enough to handle it last night.  I'll have to check
for buds too.  Thanks for the heads-up.
