Gardener’s almanac (Feb. 1, 2014)

Winter damage to leaves – Leaves on the euonymus shrubs at my house look horrible, and apparently that’s the norm for broad-leaved evergreens because of the extreme cold of January, horticulturist Ward Upham of K-State says. But good news: It’s not serious. Upham says that the ugly leaves will drop and new ones will replace them this spring. “If we had received these temperatures in the fall before the plants had hardened off, the damage could have been devastating,” Upham writes in Horticulture 2014 this week. “As it is, we just have to put up with some ugly plants for the rest of the winter.” Can do.
