Winter Protection

DECIDUOUS TREES

i.e. Elm, Oak, Maple, Hornbeam, Crape Myrtle, Plum, Cypress

Leave these trees on the benches. These trees need cold temperatures to start the natural process of dormancy. It’s okay if pots freeze solid.

HARDY EVERGREENS

i.e. Japanese and English Boxwood, Pine, Podocarpus, Juniper, Cedar, Azalea, Camellia. Note: Flowers will be damaged by freezing temperatures.
