Last night the temperature dropped to 25 degrees. Normally this would not be a problem but with our early spring everything was two weeks ahead. A number of trees and shrubs suffered leaf damage including Magnolia 'Butterflies' and Styrax obassia. Some varieties of hosta also had frost damage too, but overall the garden came through fine and the plants will recover. I won't put any tender plants out for another few weeks.
