This shot show a palm, Butia x Jubea, to the left which is structurally undamaged by the snow. We’ll have to wait until later to see if it suffered any significant cold damage. The Cordyline australis ‘Torbay Dazzler’ is part of my original planting and has suffered some damage in past winters, not the las two. It is listed as a Zn 9a plant good to down to 25ºF, this is the first time it dropped below that, but I really don’t know how cold this site got. The Choysia ‘Sundance’ to the right appears to be undamaged by cold or snow weight. The historic cold snap in early February ’89 was much more severe and decimated Choysia ternate all over the City.
