Great pics Alex. I am starting to see huge differences in damaging temps here in Florida. In Pittsburgh, it's hard to pinpoint because it can get so darn cold for so long that you can't tell if it's duration or temperature. I am noticing many plants I see in 9b here every day (like ti plants, BOP's and crotons) you don't even mention. I assume because they were heavily damaged there or they are not considered hardy? I am still blown away at all the damage I see every day here. It is in the mid-upper 80's recently though, and it looks as if everything is starting to rapidly grow.
