Re: Crotons are goners here, there's a nice BOP in one of those pics.
They'll probably reach about a foot tall if they grow back well enough. I have too much purple in my front yard so if they come back, I might dig them up and move then into a shady corner in the backyard.
Papayas are weird. There were a few in town surviving for several years (20 feet tall!) I can't imagine any survived this winter though.
Bids of Paradise are way too high maintanence in most of north Florida. They seem to look pretty nice in Orlando southward. They can handle a freeze into the upper 20s before they fry so they're a little nicer looking than bananas (But not as tasty! haha)
