20 here and a high of only 33 yesterday. I think I toasted a Musella bloom. I left it out the night before last, down to 25F. It stayed below freezing for about 36 hours. When I went to move it, I saw that it HAD been blooming, probably for a couple months. I hadn't seen the bloom because it was buried in foliage. Anyone experienced with this species want to weigh in on the bloom's prognosis? The plant should be fine, I just don't know if I should cut off the bloom with the toasted foliage or not. I'll leave it on for at least a few days to see how it does.
